Ray White Carnegie’s Matt Hurlston: Funding for gifted children across Victoria

By Matt Hurlston

The latest announcement from the Victorian government has offer some insight into the future of education across the state, with $1.2million worth of grants being announced for gifted and talented students throughout the region. 

Owners of Carnegie real estate with young children could be in luck, with minister for education Martin Dixon announcing that 12 not-for-profit organisations throughout Melbourne and the wider state will be receiving funds over the next three years to help foster the skills and talents of children. 

"Giving talented students real world opportunities to learn alongside industry professionals is one of the most effective ways to not just keep them engaged, but really extend their learning," said Mr Dixon in a 19 October statement. 

Some of the organisations to receive money include the Victoria Association for Environmental Education, the Mathematics Association of Victoria and the History Teachers' Association of Victoria. These programs help children get hands on experience in their passions, in order to encourage higher academic pursuits.
