Opportunity Class Placement Test

All Year 4 students will received a note at the end of Term 1, outlining details for applying for Year 5 Opportunity Class (OC) placement in 2020. Opportunity classes cater for highly achieving 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.

Mrs Elliott and Mrs Edgley will host a parent information session for Year 4 parents regarding the Opportunity Class placement process on Thursday May 9, 2019 at 5pm in the school hall.

If you would like to have your child considered for Year 5 opportunity class entry in 2019, you need to apply soon. You will need to apply on the internet using a valid email address (not the student’s email address).

Detailed instructions on how to apply online are now available at https://education.nsw.gov.au/public-schools/selective-high-schools-and-opportunity-classes/year-5


The application website opened, Tuesday 30 April and will close on Friday 17 May 2019. No late applications will be accepted.

The date for the Opportunity Class Placement Test is Wednesday July 31 2019.
