Welcome

Welcome to the Gifted and Talented Children’s Association of South Australia!  Happy New Year and lets hope 2017 will be a winner!

GTCASA is a volunteer organisation committed to enhancing the social, emotional and intellectual development of children and adolescents with high intellectual potential.

We organise events for gifted children, their carers and teachers.

 

Forthcoming events include:

…ENRICHMENT SESSIONS – TERM 1 2017 SATURDAY CLUB

We are presenting another group of sessions with Abhi Verna from “Rack the Brain” and we will post details very soon.   We hope to present a second series of sessions but so far we have no information available.

Please be patient – we will update as soon as we are able!

 

…Would you or another family member like to become part of a PhD study on fostering the mathematical promise of Australian youth with high potential in mathematics?

Given the recent media on Australian students’ numeracy/mathematics performance on international testing and the number of STEM initiatives appearing, this study is timely and we are sharing information about the research project on our website to encourage members to participate.

The aims of the parent survey are to understand the school and non-school mathematical learning experiences of high potential mathematics students, and the impact of these learning experiences on mathematically promising students’ performance and engagement with mathematics.  Please note that all survey responses are anonymous, unless the parent provides their contact details at the end.  All survey responses will be kept confidential, and any analysis will be reported in an aggregated and/or de-identified way.
