Challenge 2018

Challenge 2018: Workshops for the Gifted

When: Tuesday 3rd July and Wednesday 4th July
Where: Our Lady's College, Chester Road, Annerley

Challenge 2018 is an exciting two-day program of challenging activities designed for students from Prep to Year 8 who are seeking extension beyond the regular school curriculum. All workshops offered are fast-paced and rigorous, and involve challenging activities pitched at individual abilities rather than chronological age. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to step up to a challenge, to meet other children of like minds and to establish new friendships. The workshops are presented by leaders with a keen interest in gifted education—experts in their field—who design programs to stimulate the interests, abilities and curiosities of gifted children.

Registrations are now open and registrations received by 19th June will determine which workshops can run so we can finalise workshop leaders. Should minimum numbers for workshops not be achieved then some workshops may be cancelled.  Do not delay register and pay early.  Paid registrations will be given priority in workshop confirmation.

Workshops run between 10am and 3pm.  Registration is from 9am each day. Parents do not attend the workshops with the children as they are fully supervised.  Children bring their lunch with them and a hat and water bottle.

There will be a Parent session offered each day at 10am and that information will be advised when confirmation of registration is emailed to you after registration payment is processed.

When selecting workshops choose options for the year level that the student is currently in at school. For example: A year 2 student will enrol in a P-2 workshop  A workshop for year 3-4 is not appropriate for younger students and likewise for the older age groups.

Registration costs:

Non-members - per child per day  $77 each
Current financial Members  - $66 each day
Members registering 2 children on the same day - $55 per child per day.
Please note: the reduced pricing for 2 children on the same day is for Members only.  If you want to pay membership - Family at $66 - at the same time as the registration then you can register at the membership rate.
