Critical and creative thinking was the topic of the 2024 QAGTC state conference. If you couldn't be there, this is a good opportunity to share in a conversation about the key takeaway messages. Following this, we turn to personal development, which can be overlooked when parenting children with high potential. Join us in a discussion around personal growth while reviewing the evidence for 'growth mindset theory'; we will then consider the application of this to gifted children.

This is a ZOOM event. The link will be sent via email on the day of the event.
