Welcome to Learning Labs

An academic enrichment program for high achieving students from Year 1 to Year 10.

About

Designed for students who are performing in the top 10% - 15% in their area of interest within their peer group, and are seeking a challenging and fun experience during the school holidays.

All workshops are held either over one or two days and cover a range of disciplines, presented by teachers with specialist training or a specific interest in gifted education. The workshop content is both rigorous and challenging, and is designed to stimulate the interest and curiosity of the academically gifted.

You could be in a public, catholic, independent school or receiving home schooling. We welcome everyone who would like to meet other kids that share your interests and meet inspiring teachers.

I have been attending Learning Labs since 2014 and find it such an enjoyable and educational opportunity. I met so many amazing people and made lots of new friends- everyone always has a great time over the two days.
