*What we do.........
The Queensland Association of Gifted and Talented Children (QAGTC) is a non-profit organisation that seeks to support parents, teachers and other key stakeholders on the needs of gifted children. The North Branch looks forward to welcoming you to any of our branch activities.
In 2017 we will meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month during the school year. We will also be holding our popular Parent Guided Study Groups alongside some exciting Children's Workshops on weekends. Event dates and information will be available on the Events page and will be updated regularly.
North Branch will be theming our parent events each term. This will allow us to explore various important topics in detail, and also link in with the theme of the Parent Guided Study Groups. Each term, we will offer discussion meetings and guest speakers to help us to gain a deeper understanding.
Term 1- Understanding Giftedness
Term 2- Identification
Term 3- Social and Emotional Development
Term 4- Understanding Underachievement
We are a group of northsiders whose lives have been touched in some way by children who are identified as (or whom we suspect may be) gifted and talented.
We offer practical tools, such as a library of resources (see list below); access to latest research articles about educational accommodations; parent-to-parent support; professional and knowledgeable guest speakers; workshops and activities for gifted children and family events.
Above all, we offer friendship and support in a non-judgemental atmosphere. We find our stories of both successes and challenges resonate strongly with others who often feel relieved to be finally understood.
All are welcome to attend.
