We support students with advanced yet complex learning needs, by providing the intellectual and creative challenges they crave, while allowing them to learn with like-minded peers in a supportive environment.
Our charitable organisation advocates for the diverse and complex learning needs of children with high learning potential. We are overseeing the running of various programmes for gifted children in Taranaki, and offer support and resources to families and schools.
From Term One 2021 we begin a new chapter by rolling out our new 'The Head Office' programme across Taranaki, replacing the MindPlus programme and The Zone in South Taranaki. The Head Office is a locally developed programme for Taranaki students.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like to find out more.
Back to Level Two!
The Head Office will start classes again on Monday, Sep 13, and we can't wait to see you all again!
We will be in touch with further details regarding our COVID policy and guidelines to keep our students, staff and community safe via email.
We wish you all a safe return to school and look forward to seeing you all for your Head Office classes next week.
