Opportunity Class

The Opportunity Class program is for academically gifted students in Year 5 and Year 6. Entry to the class is via assessment through the Selective Schools Unit, Sydney.

The class provides a forum in which students can learn to be creative and critical thinkers. In this environment, students are encouraged to develop positive interpersonal relationships, and to cooperate and communicate their ideas effectively with others of similar ability.

To achieve this, the curriculum of the OC is differentiated from the standard curriculum of mainstream classes in order to cater for the potential of these gifted students, and to provide flexibility of learning opportunity.
