Abstract

Gifted children in the primary school years (5-12 years of age) in regional areas of western New South Wales do not necessarily have access to programs concomitant with their identified learning needs. This research examined three program offerings - an opportunity class, a withdrawal program and a virtual classroom - running in regional New South Wales. Following descriptions of the three programs, the analysis identified five critical issues that require deeper investigation across the programs. These include: the opportunity for students to interact with 'like minds', the development of an inclusive and appropriate selection process, the level of support between mainstream classrooms and the enrichment classroom, communication and curriculum and pedagogy
