Gifted Education

Learners who are gifted have the ability or potential to operate at levels far beyond their age peers.  Learners may be gifted in many ways, however four key domains in which students many be gifted are:

  • intellectual
  • creative
  • social
  • physical


The need for Gifted Education at Stella Maris has become a priority and this year, Mrs Kate Mace will be taking on the role of Gifted Education Coordinator. The school will be a part of the diocesan Enrichment project, “SPLICED” which aims to enhance the thinking and learning skills of our Gifted students. Kate will also be administering formal testing procedures on selected students, working with, providing advice and direction to these students in order to maximize performance and learning outcomes, as well as working with teachers to support them in providing differentiation to their students.
