Sally Brock - Education Officer (Gifted Education)

I am the Education Officer - Gifted Education for the Maitland-Newcastle diocese and a member of the diocese’s Gifted Education Committee. I have been involved in the development and implementation of the system-wide approach to gifted education K-12.

My background is in primary education and learning support. I have been a project officer and education officer at the CSO since 2012 with a focus on the Action Plan - Literacy and Numeracy project and primary curriculum.

I have a masters in gifted education at the University of New South Wales. My role is to coordinate the development of gifted education programs in schools, implement initiatives and recommendations, disseminate information and facilitate professional learning for teachers and leaders to ensure gifted education is embedded in curriculum delivery across the diocese.

It is a privilege to work with our school leaders, Gifted Education Mentors and staff as we work together to provide meaningful opportunities for all students to excel, engage and exceed expectations in their learning.
