Gifted and talented students

Optimising every student’s opportunity to achieve their potential lies at the heart of Taranganba’s State School’s Gifted and Talented framework.

Our vision for students who are gifted and talented is that they feel valued in a learning environment, which both challenges and supports them to pursue excellence and develop a passion for lifeline learning.
