Involvement in these programs may be suited to particular age groups and available spaces.

All classes have students who benefit from extension work in a number of key learning areas. Our professional teachers cater for all students in a variety of ways, including specialised groups within the class and/or grade and enrichment classes which are created when there are enough children to form a multi-aged or composite class.
