EMPOWER Program at Gungahlin College
Gungahlin College is committed to its vision of empowering every student to reach their full potential.
We empower students with high potential, motivation and Gifted and Talented characteristics to achieve their personal best and holistic growth through targeted enrichment and extension opportunities, and mentoring partnerships.
Empowerment is seen every day at the college through students pursuing their passions, leading our school community and continuously striving to excel in their intellectual, leadership, creative or artistic capacity, or in specific academic fields.
We wish to celebrate and support students who are curious about the world, who have the desire to learn, and who are leaders within our community.
EMPOWER program Focus
- Culture of excellence: considering how to better recognise the achievements of our students in academic fields at a whole school level and the development of a clear school ethos around student achievement.
