Thinkways is different. Established by a scientist and a fully qualified, registered teacher with over a decade of experience in gifted and talented education, Thinkways swiftly earned its reputation as a trusted, government-recognised, independent Australian educational organisation. The program allows young children to collaborate and work together with like minded peers in an enriching, challenging and engaging environment. 

Our aims:

  • Nurture children’s unique interests and abilities by providing stimulating programs that introduce them to new ideas and experiences.
  • Provide children with the opportunity to explore areas of unique interest typically not available until high school or university.
  • Support children with high learning potential to develop a growth mindset by praising the process, practice and hard work that allows achievement of true potential.
  • Encourage intellectual risk taking and embrace failures as a part of the learning process.
  • Work with families, schools, universities and professionals to support children with high learning potential.

Our beliefs:

  • Positive, lifelong learning for all, encompassing an appropriate, ambitious and equally challenging education for every young person including those with high learning potential.
  • The importance of constructive partnerships that serve the best interests of young people with high learning potential.
  • The value of young people, parents, universities and schools as full partners in the learner’s education; developing skills and confidence to enable them to play this equal role.
  • The importance of raising awareness about and advocating for the needs of young people with high learning potential and their families.
  • Retaining our independent voice of Western Australia, representing young people with high learning potential.
  • Recognising the connection between the educational and social-emotional needs of young people with high learning potential and supporting their holistic development.

Recognising the unique needs of high-potential learners and fostering an environment that encourages and stimulates their learning is paramount, and this is where Thinkways can help. We are dedicated to equipping these learners with the resilience and support necessary to address their social and emotional needs, enabling them to reach their full potential.

Our workshops are facilitated by fully qualified, registered teachers with extensive experience, each boasting over a decade of expertise in delivering specialised educational programs tailored for gifted and talented individuals. They are complemented by experts in their respective fields, ensuring a comprehensive and enriching learning experience for all participants.

Workshops are inclusive and welcome children with a strong interest in the topic, regardless of their schooling background. Scheduled year-round, including during school holidays, term time, and weekends, these workshops take place in inspiring locations. Often situated within the University of Western Australia or carefully selected schools, these environments are chosen not only to cultivate creativity and ignite inspiration among young participants but also for the safety and well-being of the students. We prioritise creating a secure and supportive atmosphere where children can thrive and explore their interests with confidence. We firmly believe that such settings enrich the learning journey, empowering children to explore, innovate, and unleash their curiosity and imagination to the fullest extent.
