Gifted and Talented Education (GATE)

New for September 2022 at St. Paul Catholic Elementary School: The Gifted Classroom and Enrichment for All


Enrichment for All 

 At St. Paul Catholic Elementary School, all children will engage in a school-wide focus, that will include:

  • An inquiry focus that builds on the foundations of literacy and numeracy as we strengthen competencies across all learning domains
  • Building upon student agency with humility as we love and serve within our community (students will actively be involved in social justice projects)
  • Learning within an environment that enhances student creativity and imagination
  • Growing community partnerships that link instructional practises that extend teaching and learning beyond the traditional school environment
  • Providing tiered assignments and independent projects for all students
  • Offering a variety of clubs for students (i.e. Speech and Debate, Robotics, Engineering, Geoscience, Go Green Initiatives)

The Gifted Classroom

Students in the Gifted Classroom will have a specialized teacher that:

  • Develops Individual Program Plans (IPP’s) for students that include a personal interest inventory and an individual learner profile, focusing on a strength-based mindset
  • Provides independent study that varies in levels of complexity and depth that aligns with the Alberta Program of Studies
  • Provides enrichment clusters for deeper learning of concepts and skill development
  • Works with students in multi-aged grouping

*This program is targeted specifically for those students who meet the Gifted and Talented Criteria.
