Our vision for every student is to ensure they are provided with opportunities to extend and enhance their learning.
We have a whole school approach to identifying and differentiating the curriculum for students, to enable us to cater for their specific needs.
Our policy and ideals are based around the Gifted and Talented Framework for Education Queensland.
