Turramurra High School aims to identify gifted and talented students and to maximise their learning outcomes. Giftedness refers to potential distinctly beyond the average for the student's age and encompasses a broad range of abilities in the intellectual, creative, socio-emotional and physical domains. Talent denotes achievement distinctly beyond the average for a student's age as a result of application to training and practice.
Students are placed in a Gifted and Talented class at Turramurra High School based on overall merit. Students sit the higher ablility HAST suite of tests and this informs our placement. The makeup of classes will be based upon the outcomes of this assessment and other relevant information, focussing on the capabilities of students in the intellectual and creative domains. Other school based programs are designed to cater for the gifts and talents of students in other areas.
