Talented and Gifted Students 

‘Talented and Gifted’ refers to having outstanding ability in one or more areas of intelligence, creativity, academic achievement or special talents and abilities, such as the performing arts or in a leadership capacity. Once identified, individual teachers support the Talented and Gifted (TAG) students at RWA with challenging learning objectives, independent research opportunities, flexible grouping, etc. within the main classrooms.

Additional TAG services may be in the form of enrichment programs inside the general education classes or resource rooms. These include assigning students’ individual projects and studies or having them attend lectures, debates, educational seminars, or participate in educational competitions, thereby providing students with a variety of programs to solve problems, build leadership, communication and computer skills, and other such enrichment programs.

The Inclusion Support Team coordinates and develops resources for the Enrichment Club in the Primary School. This is run as a co-curricular activity (CCA) for Grades 1 to 5. In the Secondary School, our Highly Able (TAG) students in each grade are mentored by various members of staff. The Head of Inclusion coordinates this mentorship program.
