Welcome to Learning Labs

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

Applications are now closed for primary students. There are still available places in the high school program only. 

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.
