MindPlus Clubs Days
MindPlus Clubs Days provide gifted Y3 - 10 students with an opportunity to explore their passion areas with other like minds. Our focus is not on kids who are necessarily achieving highly in an area or who need extra help with it, but on kids who love an area and who are excited to explore it together with kids who share their interests.
Who can come to MindPlus Clubs Days?
All MindPlus OurSchool, YourSchool and Online students, current and past, are welcome to attend as are students who are part of the NZ Association for Gifted Children or who have been nominated by their school. If your child does not fall into one of these categories, you can still apply for them to come along by answering the three questions which follow about (1) their giftedness (2) their passion for the area and (3) their attitude to the opportunity.
How do I know if my child has been accepted?
We will let you know whether your child's place has been confirmed, or if we need to talk with you further. If we do not think that your child would be a good fit, we will refund your ticket.
Your child's name
We define a gifted child as one with high abilities (eg intellectual, creative) and particular personal qualities (like intensity, curiosity, sensitivity). Check out our website (https://www.nzcge.nz/identification )for more information.
Do you consider your child to be gifted?
Tell us a little bit about your child's abilities and qualities.
Gifted kids are usually pretty passionate about one or more areas. They love to go deeply into an area, explore it, and (often) talk at length about it to anyone who will listen!
Is your child really interested in the Club area you have signed up for?
A LITTLE BIT interested
NOT REALLY interested
Tell us a little about their interest in the area.
MindPlus Clubs Days are an action-packed day of learning with like minds. Kids will need to be excited to meet new people, give new things a go, and to get stuck in, probably outside their normal comfort zones.
How does your child feel about the potential to come to MindPlus Clubs Day?
