2019 Gifted and Talented Program

The Spinifex State College Gifted and Talented program has been running for many years. It is an excellent opportunity for Year 6 students to embark one extended study in a subject area that they excel in and enjoy. Please note that students do not have to be officially recognised as gifted or talented in order to be eligible. All students who have a genuine interest in the specific subject area are encouraged to apply. The program runs during Term 2 and 3 each year in four different subject areas.
In 2019, we are pleased to offer the following programs:

·  Science
·  Music
·  Design Technology
·  Gastronomy
The program runs for 10 weeks during Term 2 and 3. This year the Science and Music Programs will run on Tuesday afternoons 1.30pm-2.30pm and the Design Technology and Gastronomy Program will run on Wednesday afternoons1.30pm-2.30pm.Transport from each school will be arranged by Spinifex State College for the Year 6 students to attend the afternoon sessions at our Junior Campus. Upon completion of each session students will be dismissed from the Junior Campus at 2:30pm and parents will need to make alternate arrangements for collection on these days.
