3.2.3: 1 + 1 + 4 = Thousands of kids

It is vital that the needs of the gifted child are met, for the sake of the child and for the benefit of society. The New Zealand Centre for Gifted Education provides a suite of services nationwide to support the gifted child, their teachers, and their families. This session will outline the journey of the Centre, the development of its curriculum, and the establishment of sector-wide programmes ranging from early years to secondary. Participants will see the benefits of specialist educators, collaboration between educational communities, and the combination of like-minds together in responsive and differentiated learning environments.
