  Nationwide Talented Kids Campaigns Awareness

Our 2nd Annual Virtual Cake Stall is about giving gifted children opportunities to maximise their potential.

We're a little bit like a school but have students right across the country who are connected by the simple fact - they're gifted.

Just like an ordinary cake stall brings together a community and helps support a worthy cause, our virtual cake stall brings us together no matter where we are and allows us to support gifted children locally and nationally. Of course, without the fuss of actually making a cake!

What we're asking is for you to give what you would normally spend on making or buying a cake to help gifted children make sure they're getting the right support for the learning needs.

Be it $3 for a slice of cake or $30 for a fancy cake, all it will take you is a few clicks to make this happen for gifted children right across NZ!

About us

Everyday gifted young New Zealanders' are missing opportunities to realise their full potential. We want to provide those opportunities with access to programmes that understand them, recognition of their talents, and support for the networks who surrounding them.

We want to see a future New Zealand doing extraordinary things.

The New Zealand Centre for Gifted Education provides a number of services to achieve this:

SMALL POPPIES - Big things often have small beginnings.

Small Poppies is a learning programme for gifted 2-6 year olds. A specialist teacher facilitates challenging, child-centred learning experiences, designed to stimulate inquiring and creative young minds. Children attend Small Poppies with a parent or caregiver, which provides an immediate shared learning opportunity and support network.

MIND PLUS - Where like-minds grow together

MindPlus allows 7-13 year old intellectually and creatively gifted children to engage and interact in rigorous and in-depth learning with liked-minded peers. Working with a specialist teacher children explore what it means to be gifted, expand their minds, pursue their passions and develop their talents.

GIFTED ONLINE - A space where I can connect

Gifted Online uses technology to connect gifted students with each other, with specialist teachers and with challenging and engaging learning opportunities. Gifted Online includes a variety of options including a one-day programme equivalent and specific talent development programmes. GO Day, GO Sessions and GO Talent (the one-day programme equivalent) include independent learning and online chats between students and their teacher. The talent development programmes include a combination of face-to-face and online learning.

CONSULTANCY SERVICES -Sharing what works
