The VAGTC in partnership with the Department of Education and Training (DET) is facilitating
FREE parent seminars which aim to educate and support parents of high ability children.
Based on themes that arose as ‘high interest/high needs’ in the 2020 seminars, these seminars are designed to foster positive and collaborative home/school partnerships, and to connect parents with each other to provide networking and support.
The seminars provide thematized exploration of elements of the following categories:
Identify -Definitions & identification of giftedness & talent
Understand -Understanding the characteristics & needs of gifted kids
Acknowledging that change, particularly within educational contexts, can be challenging for students and their parents, we will focus on strategies for positive schooling transitions, such as: preschool to school, primary to secondary, acceleration (full grade skips), starting senior secondary, leaving school and changing schools
