Last updated 4:44 PM on 5 May 2012

Opportunity class placement provides intellectual stimulation and an educationally enriched environment for academically gifted and talented children in Years 5 and 6 who would otherwise be isolated from a suitable peer group.

Opportunity class students are accommodated in one of the following class groupings according to the school structure: a Year 5 opportunity class; a Year 6 opportunity class; a Year 5/6 composite opportunity class; or a composite class consisting of opportunity class and nonopportunity class students. Offers for opportunity class placement will be made on the basis of the Opportunity Class Placement Test, school assessment and other evidence of academic merit.
