The New Zealand Centre for Gifted Education's MindPlus programme operates in the primary and intermediate sectors. Students who attend MindPlus are legally classed as attending their regular school that day, learning off-site. Many schools acknowledge the value in what we offer our students and the expertise we are able to share with the educational community. These schools become membership schools.
Host School: This is the school where the MindPlus classroom operates. Membership School: These schools pay a membership subscription and receive additional support for their staff. Partnership Schools: These are the 250+ schools who agree for their students to attend our programme but currently are not financially supportive of the opportunity.
All schools who have students attending MindPlus are encouraged to become membership schools. This is an important part of their support for gifted learners and an essential/necessary part of our sustainability as a charitable organisation that receives no Ministry of Education or other government funding.
