upcoming events in perth and western australia

Want to find like minds for your kids? Here you will find links to any upcoming events relating to gifted children that are local to Western Australia. These events provide gifted kids with the opportunity to socialise with other children with similar interests. Seeing these children play together is just a wonderful experience. When they are together they no longer feel such a sense of difference, as can be the case when they are with same age peers. You will also find links to any upcoming conferences or online ‘chat’ sessions that are made available globally to parents of gifted children, or interested individuals and professionals working in the field. Please note this page acts as a public notice board; all services or events are independently run and, unless mentioned otherwise, are not affiliated in any way with Mermaids and Mermen.

Want to meet up with other parents of gifted children and find friends for your kids? Why not join our Facebook Group? Come and say ‘hi’! We’re a very friendly and supportive bunch :) .

What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child. – George Bernard Shaw
