Welcome

Welcome to the Gifted and Talented Children’s Association of South Australia and a Happy New Year to all!

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.

...COMMITTEE INFORMATION

GTCASA Committee

GTCASA  is always  looking for energetic volunteers who understand giftedness and believe in helping to unlock the potential of these special needs children.Please email us at giftedsa@gtcasa.asn.au if you have a couple of free hours to assist us with our plans!  Or contact us if you wish to observe at one of our meetings with a view to joining us!

 

Forthcoming GTCASA events include:

 

SATURDAY CLUB

TERM 2 2018

We hope to have full details available very soon.  You should note we intend introducing Eventbtrite software for bookings this term so things will be a little different and we will provide more detail as it becomes available

Please be patient with the Association as our volunteer Committee works very hard to bring your children and families the most varied Saturday Club sessions it is able to.  Our resources are finite and the Committee is very small and only has a limited number of hours to devote to this task!

To explain a little more…! The show will be an exciting competition series, judged by members of the Mensa Society, that will celebrate the incredible talents of gifted children aged 7 to 12 who have extraordinary IQ levels. If you know of some young bright minds for the show contact us and I wondered if you would be kind enough to help us spread the word within your community.  You can make application here
