The annual Gifted Awareness Blog Tour runs through the month of June each year as an activity associated with New Zealand's Gifted Awareness Week. It is an opportunity for you to have your say about giftedness, and to also share in the experiences and perspectives of others.
We would love to hear your feedback on our Position Paper and your thoughts about giftedness in NZ.
Want to organise some celebratory activities in your area? Check out some suggestions here.

With National Standards gone, the Ministry are reviewing how to track progress and achievement in Year 1-10.
