Defining 'gifted' and 'talented
 
Gifted students are those whose potential is distinctly above average in one or more of the following domains of human ability:
 
       Intellectual, creative, social and physical.
 
       Giftedness designates the possession and use of outstanding natural abilities, called aptitudes, in at least one ability domain, to a degree that places an individual at least among the top 10%of age peers in the school.
