Meetings for Parents

Information Evenings for Parents are held every 4th Tuesday at the Hamilton Central Baptist Church, Charlemont Street, from 7.30 pm – parking and entry at Gate 3 (northern side of the complex).
Tuesday 28 September – For many, next week is the first week of the school holidays so we’ve planned an informal evening to share our ‘best books’ and ‘top websites’. Come along and pick up some tips on a wide variety of topics in giftedness, and some ideas on where to find practical things to do over the holidays. Bring along your own favourite books and other resources and join us for supper.
Tuesday 26 October – Creativity – does your child have special creative abilities?  How do you know? What is creativity and how can it be nurtured?  Share your own experiences and learn from practitioners in this field.
Tuesday 23 November –  One of the best things we can teach our children is resilience.  “Gifted children are more sensitive to interpersonal conflicts and experience greater degrees of alienation and stress than do their peers… they need to be specifically taught skills that promote resilience, such as a positive and pro-active approach to daily life, flexibility, task persistence, divergent thinking and problem solving skills.”  Our November information evening will focus on this critical aspect of growth and development.
