What is Q'ed?
The Christian College Geelong Q’ed program has been designed to:
• Identify gifted and talented students and respond to their needs
• Encourage and empower gifted and talented learners to reflect on and improve their learning.
• Enable gifted and talented students to continue their intellectual, social and emotional development in richly challenging, yet supportive, learning context.
Q'ed 1- Years 5 to 7
The Q’ed 1 program gathers a small group of carefully selected gifted and talented students from years 5, 6 and 7 at both Highton and Bellarine, and takes them on a uniquely challenging, educational journey of self-discovery and self empowerment.
Q’ed 1 unfolds once a week in second semester at Q’ed House, Senior Campus. The program concludes late term 4 with a powerful exhibition of the students’ research and discovery. Q’ed 1 student selection starts with teacher, parent and student nomination, and passes through several critical filters to ensure candidates are appropriately positioned to benefit from the program.
