Gifted & Talented Study Day

This study day offers a unique provision for academically gifted students.

The aim of this study day is to help gifted students to:

  • Improve their thinking skills
  • Begin to be able to identify what is fundamental from what is trivial
  • Become intellectually creative
  • Identify assumptions and distinguish between good and poor arguments
  • Think systematically and rigorously about relevant modern day issues

Join us on Snapchat – aconferences – for your daily philosophical thought of the day, plus access to free resources.

Tuition fees: $AUD50.00/$NZ50.00. One free staff place is available for every 12 students. 

Unaccompanied staff places attending for professional development are available at $195.

Registration begins at 9am for a 9.30am start, and finishes at 2.30pm. Students must bring their own tea and lunch - a water bottle is also recommended. Morning tea and lunch is provided for accompanying teachers.

Parents are welcome to attend on payment of the same student fee.

Note that most schools require their full school uniform to be worn to the conference, and we believe this makes for a very professional and smart appearance by students representing their school.

Please also note that we cannot accept bookings for unaccompanied students, and all students attending are required to have a supervising teacher, or parent, with them. This is a workplace health and safety issue, as we do not have the necessary staff to provide supervision of students at the conference, or during meal breaks. If a school is not attending, and a student from that schools wishes to attend independently, they can do so, but they must be accompanied by a supervising adult who is charged at the student rate, and who makes the booking.

After three weeks prior to a conference date, all bookings will be charged the full fee on the invoice and are not open to cancellation.

To book with us fill in your full details below:


Online bookings (with the exception of unaccompanied teacher bookings) must have at least 4 students. If you wish to make a booking of less than 4 students then please contact the office.
