Opportunity Class

What are opportunity classes?

Opportunity classes cater for highly achieving Year 5 and Year 6 academically gifted students who may otherwise be without classmates at their own academic and social level. These classes help gifted and talented students to learn by grouping them with other gifted and talented students, teaching them in specialised ways and providing educational materials at the appropriate level.

Parents normally apply when students are in Year 4. Students who are placed then attend the opportunity class full time in Years 5 and 6 at the primary school with an opportunity class. It is a two-year placement program. In the majority of cases, students who accept a place in an opportunity class will leave their current school to attend the school with an opportunity class. There is no provision to apply for Year 6 placement only.

Please note, there is no Opportunity Class at Kincumber Public School. Please download the OC information pack below to read more about Opportunity Class locations.

An intention to apply letter was sent home on Tuesday 1 May, 2018. This is not an application form. By returning this letter to KPS, parents let the school know which students require assessment scores to support their application. The rest of the process happens without school input. Parents are responsible for completing online applications.
