Students identified as Gifted and Talented

Definitions

Giftedness designates the possession and the use of outstanding natural abilities, called aptitudes, in at least one ability domain, to a degree that places an individual at least among the top 10% of age peers in the school. These domains include:

  • Intellectual
  • Creative
  • Social
  • Physical

Talented students are those whose skills are above average in one or more areas of performance. Talent designates the outstanding mastery of abilities over a significant period. These are called competencies (knowledge and skills). Outstanding mastery is evident in at least one field of human activity to a degree that places an individual at least among the top 10% of age peers in the school who are or have been active in that field.

Centenary State High School uses a team approach to provide consistent and continuous identification processes school wide.  The following four-step identification process ensures data-collection processes are reliable and valid. 

Identification for Gifted and Talented students

The identification is multifaceted and works as a continuous cycle with annual reviews of objective measures and regular reviews with students, teachers and parents, as well as the Gifted and Talented committee.
