Excellence programs

​All students at Ashmore State School have the opportunity to develop their skills according to their aptitude to develop their true potential. It is our jobs as teachers to make sure we facilitate the growth of gifts into talents. It is a teacher’s responsibility to identify these skills and challenge students accordingly to personalise their learning leading to optimal results. It is crucial that those students who have been identified as gifted and talented are given appropriate opportunities to engage, stimulate and develop their potential. It is the classroom teacher’s responsibility to:

•  identify the special gifts and talents of students, implement effective learning strategies and provide appropriate resources

•  Regularly monitor the performance of students using a range of assessment measures so that assessment informs teaching.
