Gifted Kids share their stories in September

Gifted Kids is pleased to announce the Annual Sharing Nights that are taking place throughout the country in September. Sharing Nights are an opportunity for Gifted Kids students to showcase the learning they have been undertaking throughout the 2012 school year.

“Sharing nights are organised by our local units to give the students, parents, communities and supporters a chance to celebrate the diverse learning undertaken by our students every year” says Deb Clark, CEO of Gifted Kids.

During the Sharing Nights students will showcase projects they have been working on that follow the ‘systems’ focus the curriculum has been centred around this year or their own talent development journeys.

Gifted Kids is a place where exceptionally talented and creative children are given a space to develop their diverse talents, strengths and abilities. It gives these students somewhere they can be surrounded by like-minded peers and are encouraged to grow their exceptional talents” says Ms Clark.

Ms Clark mentions, “These Sharing Nights are a great opportunity for our students to show what they are capable of. They are truly inspirational and it is exciting to have this opportunity to experience their talents with them.”

The Sharing Nights will be held at Gifted Kids units in Tamaki, South Auckland, Waikowhai, Northern Wairoa, Rotorua, Hutt Valley and Wellington.
