Students who are gifted, excel or are capable of excelling, in one or more areas such as:
specific academic studies,
visual and performing arts,
interpersonal and intrapersonal skills.
Giftedness in a student is commonly characterised by an advanced pace of learning, quality of thinking or capability for remarkably high standards of performance compared to students of the same age.
Although these students are capable of outstanding achievement, the learning environment is pivotal to enabling them to demonstrate and develop their abilities. At Payne Road State School we have polices and procedures in place to identify these children and cater for their needs.
