Opportunities for the Gifted and Talented Student
At North Sydney Boys we understand talented boys. Our boys
have exceptional talents in a range of areas and this creates and
demands a unique teaching and learning environment; one that
promotes challenge and creativity.
As a school community, we aim to develop the gifts of each
student, so he can realise his potential. We build on our
students' talents, interests and learning needs and encourage them
to persevere in their endeavours.
Extensive research in the area of gifted education consistently
reveals the need for specialised teaching and learning in order to
achieve the best for each individual. We continue to evolve
our programs to meet the needs of our students and teachers.
