Our Staff

Teachers at Fort Street are committed to helping our gifted students reach their academic potential by creating programs which build on the learning continuum, promote creative and critical thinking and incorporate differentiation to give them challenging and meaningful learning experiences.

Our Staff

In 2016 the teaching staff received training from University of NSW in Gifted and Talented education; all new staff will undertake this training at the commencement of 2018 to ensure quality teaching and learning continues to be at the core of our practice. Coming from a wide range of backgrounds themselves, and bringing a diverse range of talents and skills, teachers celebrate the diversity found in the classroom.
