Primary Extension and Challenge (PEAC) program
The PEAC program provides special courses for gifted and talented primary school students in years 5-6. Students are tested in year 4 and letters offering placements are forwarded to parents. Responsibility for transporting students to PEAC courses is the parents.
Once students have been accepted into PEAC they have the opportunity to complete an introductory course that provides social interaction with like-minded peers and covers thinking strategies, subject areas and time management skills. There are three cycles of PEAC courses each year offering different topics every cycle. Courses run for half a day a week during normal school times at designated PEAC centres. Each cycle runs for 8-10 weeks.
