At St Laurence’s College, Gifted and Talented Education is an integral facet of our endeavours to enrich the learning of every student and value their individual talents and areas of interest.
As a school in the Edmund Rice Tradition, we believe in the importance of supporting and cultivating the gifts, talents, and interests of each student. With a wide range of programs for both primary and secondary students, extending from the arenas of mathematics, science and technology to the humanities and the arts, Gifted and Talented Education at St Laurence’s College is designed to help each student maximise their potential through fun, exciting and challenging experiences. Students with specialised interests can choose to participate in year-long programs, day events or competitions in the following areas: History, politics, law, literature, philosophy, creative writing, geography, mathematics, science, engineering, IT, media, music, drama and art.
With extensive choices in both the subject area and style of programs available as part of Gifted and Talented Education at St Laurence’s College, students are assured of developing their knowledge and skills in whichever area they have a high level of ability, interest, or motivation to learn.
As Director of the SLC Centre for Gifted and Talented Education, I encourage you, whether current or prospective members of the St Laurence’s College community to celebrate what the young men of St Laurence’s College have the potential to be a part of: A culture which celebrates and cultivates the individual interests and achievements of each student; an ethos which combines achievement and compassion; and an extensive Gifted and Talented Education program with educational opportunities to help every young man in the St Laurence’s College student community fulfil his potential and thrive in the world beyond school.
