Pinnacle program

The Pinnacle Program is a Year 7 and Year 8 program that offers extension activities to high achieving, gifted and talented students.

We care about each of the students enrolled at our school and set out to nurture them and prepare them for the wider world. With this is mind, the Pinnacle program was created to extend and challenge gifted and talented students in order to maximise their learning outcomes. Our goal is to prepare students for the future, by giving them the skills they need for the 21st Century, e.g., critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, life and career skills, media literacy and technology skills.

All staff have been trained to differentiate programs to enrich student learning via Project Based Learning. In addition, teachers of Pinnacle classes undertake collaborative professional learning to ensure current research is embedded into teaching and learning programs.

It is critical that gifted and talented students be given appropriate opportunity, stimulation and experiences to develop their potential. Our program offers these opportunities across all subject areas.
