G.A.T.E.WAYS


G.A.T.E.WAYS aims to cater for children who are in the highly able to gifted range. This approximates the top 10 – 15% of children in the classroom. Programs are delivered at a faster pace than in the regular classroom, and are pitched around two years ahead of chronological age.

G.A.T.E.WAYS runs a range of programs which parents of gifted and highly able children can enrol in directly. These programs include: Brainwaves Club, Holiday Club, Festivals and Leadership.

Please see the G.A.T.E.WAY website for brochures outlining the programs. If your child(ren) is interested, please complete the expression of interest form. For first time attendees, an expression of interest is required to be completed and returned to Kyla Mamic via the office. If students have previously attended any gateways programs an email to Kyla requesting nomination to a particular program will suffice.
