MEDIA RELEASE

Dr Anne Grant a recognised Gifted and Talented Educator joins the Born to Soar team

We are very proud to announce the appointment of Dr Anne Grant to the role of Executive General Manager Early Learning. This significant additional talent allows Born to Soar to broaden their offering in addressing the needs of younger gifted and talented students.

Dr Grant has taught in the early childhood field, at both pre-school and primary level, for many years, working with children who have a range of abilities from those identified as gifted through to children with severe developmental delay.

Her research has been on the topics of how parents identify their own child as gifted and how giftedness influences children in making a successful transition from one learning environment to the next.

She is a co-author of the DEECD Resource “Making a Difference for Young Gifted and Talented Children” and provided the foundation content for the Raising Children Network online material on Raising Gifted Children.

CEO Angus Giles commented, 'Born to Soar is delighted that a person of Dr Grant's calibre as a recognised authority in Gifted Education chose our organisation to align her skills and experience to further advance the ground breaking programs offered by Born to Soar for Gifted and Talented students.'

The Victorian Government recognised Dr Grant's expertise by her appointment to an Expert Reference Group on education of gifted and talented children.

Dr Grant stated, 'Born to Soar offers targeted programs to gifted and talented students whilst continuing to foster a partnering approach for parents and schools nurturing giftedness. I am very excited to join an innovative company contributing to the advancement of Gifted Education.'

Dr Grant is leading the development of the ENTERSOAR course for students from ELC to Year 1. We are now accepting expressions of interest for enrolments for the course commencing in early 2017.
