GO Graphics – an Online Holiday Programme

I work for Gifted Online, and I’m delighted to let you know that we are having an online holiday programme! During the second week of the New Zealand school holidays (25-29 July) your children can hone their computer graphics skills in a series of online classes. This is the second of our interest-based courses. Like GO Storymakers, there will be a high appeal for gifted kids, but students do not need to be identified as gifted to join us.

Pop on over to the GO website for more information. The star at the top was made by me, using the same software that we will use for the course. (Yes, this really is about me playing with graphics software for a week and getting paid for it, but your family gets to enjoy the fun).

    i’m a mother of a seven year old boy living abroad but we are NZ citizens. my son showsa high level of curiosity and independent thinking. he has a reading level of a 9 year old and spelling level of a 10 year old. i would just like to know if he needs extra of ‘special’ attention. how do i know? i visit NZ regularly.

  2. Hi Rina,

    That depends a little on the type and amount of challenge he has in his current classes, and whether he has many opportunities to mix with children of a similar ability level at present. Being two years above chronological age is a big deal in a classroom where most kids are at chronological age or below, and the material taught doesn’t stimulate curiosity or invite exploration. It is less of a big deal where the reverse is true.
