Primary Extension and Challenge (PEAC) is a part-time program for public school children in Years 5 and 6. Children are tested in Year 4 and are selected to participate in a range of innovative and challenging programs offered in a variety of ways. Children are withdrawn from regular class to attend PEAC programs.


PEAC programs offer children:

  • the opportunity to socially interact with other gifted and talented children
  • an intellectually rigorous and challenging program
  • opportunities to interact with practising experts
  • the opportunity to develop higher order process skills and in-depth investigation skills
  • the opportunity to work on open-ended activities which encourage choice and negotiation
  • self/peer evaluation and reflection of performance.


Your child will be notified if they have been selected to participate in the PEAC program.



PEAC CHARGES for Year 5 and 6 students, if selected, will be no more than $300 for the year. 

(Cost depends on courses selected which range from $15 to $110).
