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.

Congratulations to our 7 members who were winners in the members rebate draw for the 2016 AAEGT National Conference. Don't forget you can still register to attend the conference- either for the full 3 days or a single day. The Conference dinner registration closes shortly- don't miss a wonderful evening of fine food, networking and 'Anecdotes down Memory Lane'  presented by Manoj Chandra Handa.

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.

Symbio Zoo

Symbio Wildlife Park Excursion

GFSG normally organises a school holiday event, given that we are co-hosting the National Gifted Conference in the first week, we will not be organising an additional official event, however a number of us would like to visit Symbio, Weather permitting we will be attending on Wednesday 5th October from 10am. We would love for you to join us. No registration or RSVP required - families remain responsible for the children in their care at all times.
