Gifted Families Support Group Incorporated is a not for profit association designed to support families and educators of gifted children. Run solely by volunteers, GFSG Inc. focusses on bringing together ‘like-minds’, providing a vast array of supportive events and highlighting the needs of gifted children within our community.

GFSG Inc. is affiliated with the Australian Association for the Education of Gifted and Talented Children (AAEGT) and represents NSW on the AAEGT Board. Through this affiliation, GFSG Inc. is able to expand the support we give to our members by taking their concerns to a national level and open up new opportunities. All our members automatically become members of the AAEGT, with options to subscribe to their biannual journal at members rates, and to receive discounts to events hosted by other gifted associations.

 GFSG Inc. is also affiliated with GLD Australia; a national online learning community responding to the needs of gifted children and gifted adults with specific learning disability and other learning challenges.

To attend a GFSG Inc. event, children are not required to sit an IQ test.

GFSG Inc. is a place where we hope you can feel ‘at home’ in a world where our children often seem the ‘odd ones out’.

Melinda Gindy- President of GFSG Inc.

Why do some of our brightest students become quite stressed and anxious when it comes to tests, assignments, and assessments? Why does our house resemble a nuclear meltdown the night before a test or due date? This presentation will outline some of the theory and research related to pressure, stress, and anxiety in gifted school students. Findings from a major research investigation with senior high school students will be presented and discussed, along with interviews from gifted students who made it through Year 12 and shared reflections on their school experiences as a gifted kid. Suggestions for strategies or practices for parents, students, schools and families will be offered, along with a Q&A/discussion session.
