What are opportunity classes?
Opportunity classes cater for gifted and talented Year 5 and 6 students.
The High Performing Students Unit administers the opportunity class placement process. Successful applicants enrol in a primary school with an opportunity class for Years 5 and 6. This may be at a different school to their previous schooling.
Parents apply for opportunity class placement when their child is in Year 4. It is a two-year placement program. Successful students may leave their current school at the end of Year 4 to attend a school with an opportunity class. Students cannot apply to enter for Year 6 only.
