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 online expression of interest form. For first time attendees please inform Kyla Mamic via the office.

Welcome back to school for Term 4! We are excited to announce that enrolments are now open for our final round of On Location programs for 2019, commencing in November. 

There have been major changes to the way nominations and enrolments are facilitated, so please read the following information carefully.

In response to feedback schools have given us about going paperless, we will be doing away with printable expressions of interest for these programs and introducing an online form in their place. The information collected via the online form will come directly to G.A.T.E.WAYS, meaning schools will not need to collect the printed forms or enter student data onto the portal. Much easier!
 
So Parents please read more about the specific program by clicking on the brochure hyperlink and complete the online expression of interest form. Please note that enrolments are processed on a first-come, first-served basis so we recommend acting quickly to secure your child’s place.
