We want to celebrate the more than thirty years of the Association's existence, and in particular highlight the contributions made by so many volunteers over that time. Only with their selfless giving of time and skills has the situation for gifted children in NSW been so improved. Which of course is not saying that there is not more to be done!
The NSWAGTC coordinates a number of events for gifted children and adolescents and their parents/caregivers in NSW and the ACT. We also offer professional learning opportunities for teachers, principals and allied professionals (psychologists, school counsellors) working with gifted young people. We are pleased to offer a significant member discount on all NSWAGTC events as part of our generous membership benefits program. To apply these discounts to your event bookings you simply need to use the current members only discount code which is displayed below:

NSWAGTC Committee Member Roles: ( established 2010)
Our Association is managed by an elected committee of members, who are voted in at the Annual General Meeting. The success of the association depends on the committee being representatve of all our members, and being able to provide relevant and approrpiate activities to support our members.
You might be the person we need - someone who is keen, interested in advocating for gifted children and families and from anywhere across NSW. We now are able to meet virtually - thus enabling our regional members ot be regularly involved in committee meetings and discussions. We are also able to nominate for short periods of time members to work on specific projects or tasks. This can be decided at the AGM, or during any year of operation.
Have you thought about taking on a role? At present, the structure of our committee includes these roles.
