Gold Coast

Welcome to the Gold Coast Branch of the QAGTC

The Gold Coast Branch connects you to local Gifted and Talented events and information.

The QAGTC Gold Coast Branch organises a parent/teacher support group sometimes featuring an invited guest speaker. The group aims to provide a regular forum where parents and teachers can obtain information, support and advice on raising, motivating and advocating for gifted children.

Throughout the year the Gold Coast  branch organises:

  • children's activities (during school terms, usually on Saturday afternoons).
  • parent support group (PSG), usually with a guest speaker, at the same time and venue as children's workshops so teachers/parents/carers are able to attend whilst their children are engaged in our workshop activities.
  • Gold Coast Branch Committee hold regular meetings (during term time).
