Academic Extension

Early Years Extension (EYE) Program

Mosman Park Primary School works closely with the North Metropolitan EYE team to provide a school-based extension and enrichment program for selected students in Years 1–3. The program is based on a Philosophy for Children (P4C) approach and is fully aligned with the Australian Curriculum.

Students participate in a six week program with a small group of peers. Over the course of the year the program is offered to identified students in Years 1, 2 and 3.

Primary Extension and Challenge (PEAC)

Primary Extension and Challenge (PEAC) is a Department of Education initiative which provides enrichment and extension opportunities for exceptionally able primary school students in Years 5 and 6 who are identified as gifted and talented.

Students are tested in Year 4 and are identified as being suited to participate in the PEAC program.

PEAC programs encourage:

  • social interaction with other gifted and talented children
  • intellectual rigor and challenges
  • interaction with practising experts
  • development of higher order process skills and in-depth investigation skills
  • open-ended activities which encourage choice and negotiation
  • self/peer evaluation and reflection of performance.

Students from Mosman Park Primary School are regularly selected to participate in the PEAC program. Further information can be found on the Department of Education's website.
