Gifted students wanted

Do you have a gifted child?

If so, mark Feb. 8 on your calendar.

School District 71’s Student Services Department is holding a presentation for parents called My Child is Gifted: Now What?.

The guest speaker is Dr. Janneke Frank, who holds a PhD in Gifted Education from the University of Calgary and whose research centered on teacher effectiveness in gifted education, specifically exploring inspirational teachers of gifted students.

She has extensive experience as a teacher of the gifted and as an administrator in schools that offer the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program. She served two years as appointed director of the Centre for Gifted Education at the University of Calgary.

My Child is Gifted: Now What? will be held Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Mark R. Isfeld Secondary School multi-purpose room (1551 Lerwick Rd. in Courtenay).
