Talented PPPP Workshops

  • Our Lessons incorporate a variety of problem solving strategies, including 'logical reasoning', 'make a pattern', 'draw a diagram' and 'make a list'.
  • Year 8, Year 9 and Year 10 Talented Workshops available.
  • Each Workshop runs from 9:30 am until 2:30 pm.
  • Students from participating schools must be accompanied by a Maths teacher.
