Gifted and Talented Education
Our co-ordinator, Esther Hansen would love to hear from you.
The new Gifted and Talented programme at Pukekohe High school is currently under development. The teachers involved are dedicated to developing a rigorous, innovative, meaningful academic environment to challenge the intellectual and creative abilities of gifted and talented students.
Students are identified by feeder schools, teachers, parents, peers and Kaitiaki Aakonga (Year Level Deans). The Gifted and Talented students will then be provided with a range of opportunities to extend and enrich the classroom curriculum through faculties.
Additional activities such as guest speakers and field-trips during the school year may be organised to develop links between gifted students across the school.
We take a focus on the well-being of gifted students, developing greater participation in scholarship at senior levels and critical thinking skills.
