Gifted: which children are gifted?
Whilst there is no universally accepted definition of giftedness, ‘outstanding potential and innate ability’ (Gagne) is a clear starting point.
A child may express this natural ability intellectually, creatively, socially and/or physically in ways noticeably different to children of the same age.
Although all gifted children have the potential to perform at a significantly higher level than their age-peers, their level of ability may be considered on a scale of mildly to extremely gifted. High to extreme levels of giftedness are rare, however about 10% of children may fall within the full range.
The Templeton Primary School Chess Program is an integral part of our school. Students in Grade 2 – 6 have the opportunity to participate in fully immersive Chess lessons with Wayne, our specialist Chess teacher. Our school is highly successful in district and regional Chess competitions, with our various awards visible in our trophy cabinet.
Our Instrumental Music Program runs every Thursday in the Community Room. Students in Grade 3-6 have the opportunity to learn clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, flute and percussion in 30 minute group lessons with Taliya Blom from Musicorp. Once students have reached a discretionary level of competence, they are eligible for the Templeton Band, which has before school rehearsals and performs at assemblies and events.
Vicky Howse runs our Violin program on Wednesdays in the Community Room. Students in Grade 1-6 can receive individual or group lessons in the Community Room, with the opportunity to perform in the Templeton Band and the Templeton String Ensemble, who rehearse on Wednesdays at lunchtime.

Children are graded by both their skill and physical maturity so that all children in the class are of a similar level. Individual swimming skills in our program have been broken down for ease of learning. As your child masters each skill, new skills are added.
Just Swimming Nunawading is considered one of the best swim schools in Australia. With more than 3600 children enjoying and learning in swimming lessons each week, the quality of the program is recognised throughout the country.
We are proud and excited to have some of our students participating in the 2019 Victorian State Schools Spectacular: Made of Stars.
The Spectacular brings together government school communities from across Victoria. Fittingly, this year’s theme, Made of Stars, will feature a galaxy of out-of-this-world performances showing that these students are made of star stuff.
