This paper addresses the initial strategies adopted by an Australian primary school in catering for the needs of gifted and talented children. As part of a state-wide initiative, the school was one of eight that were funded to develop a program of gifted education. Implementing this initiative required considerable change in many teachers’ beliefs and knowledge. Additionally, in the face of many competing priorities, change was seen as problematic. In confronting the issue of sustained change, the school has adopted a collaborative approach that involves the school, the education authority and a higher education institution.
