Gifted & Talented

At Springfield Juniors we believe that all children should strive towards fulfilling their potential through a creative curriculum which encourages all to PLBA. Lessons are differentiated  to cater for all abilities. However we acknowledge that some children have gifts and talents which need to be fostered, sometimes through extra curricular activities. Over the past year we have offered a variety of different opportunities to cater for our gifted and talented students.
