About Us

We are a Not for Profit charitable organisation that exists to support gifted children and their families in the Wellington region. We hold regular events for families and parents – check out our ‘Events’ page for more details.

We are a branch of the New Zealand Association for Gifted Children. The NZAGC website is here.

What is


There is no ONE definition for the Gifted or Talented Child.  Giftedness is involuntary – a natural gift. It gives no cause for claims of elitism.

Out of every hundred children, approximately five can be classified as “gifted”, yet only a small proportion may be identified as such in school.
