Open your mind, open your eyes.
Help us shatter this glass disguise.
With respect, listen, look and learn,
Give us all the chances we deserve.
Honour our culture, know who we are
And go to that gifted and talented seminar!
So that you just might, one sic day,
Recognise we're gifted and talented aye.
Smash these glass barricades down!
Help to smash assumptions and break down stereotypes. Give all learners a true shot at wellbeing and success, no matter who they are and where they come from. Gifted learners come from all walks of life. Focus not on what you believe a student can't, doesn't or won't do, but on their strengths, abilities and unique qualities. Oh, and go to the next gifted and talented seminar!!
Note: 'Sic' is urban slang for great, fabulous, awesome
