The MindPlus is a programme for gifted 6-13 year olds that provides intellectual, creative, social and emotional learning and support. Children come together, with a specialist teacher, for one day each week. There is no more than 16 permanent students in a class, although fluctuations can occur occasionally to accommodate students. Together they engage in differentiated, strength-based learning experiences to further develop their gifts and talents and a greater understanding of themselves.

How are students selected?
The selection process combines information from the student’s school, the parents and from student participation in a selection workshop.
The selection process begins in term three, in order for student workshops, parent and teacher assessments to be completed. Please approach your school in the beginning of term 3 if you're interested.
Is your child's school a cluster school?
How much does it cost?
In 2017, families are charged $35 per day for attending MindPlus. This works out at $350/term and $1400 annually. Currently families are asked to make their financial contribution at the beginning of each term. We ask families to commit to the entire year as placements are limited.
