Gifted Families Support Group Incorporated is a not for profit association designed to support families and educators of gifted children. Run solely by volunteers, GFSG Inc. focusses on bringing together ‘like-minds’, providing a vast array of supportive events and highlighting the needs of gifted children within our community.
GFSG Inc. is affiliated with the Australian Association for the Education of Gifted and Talented Children (AAEGT) and represents NSW on the AAEGT Board. Through this affiliation, GFSG Inc. is able to expand the support we give to our members by taking their concerns to a national level and open up new opportunities. All our members automatically become members of the AAEGT, with options to subscribe to their biannual journal at members rates, and to receive discounts to events hosted by other gifted associations.
GFSG Inc. is also affiliated with GLD Australia; a national online learning community responding to the needs of gifted children and gifted adults with specific learning disability and other learning challenges.
To attend a GFSG Inc. event, children are not required to sit an IQ test.
GFSG Inc. is a place where we hope you can feel ‘at home’ in a world where our children often seem the ‘odd ones out’.
Melinda Gindy- President of GFSG Inc.
Thank you to all who joined us in a fantastical time travel journey to the Elizabethan era into the world of fairies, fantasy, betrayal and comedy. All participants had great time in Shakespeare fun with an immersion into Elizabethan times with A Midsummer Night's Dream with our awesome facilitator Ian.

Thank you to all those who came along and enjoyed themselves in our S.T.E.A.M and dramatic drama workshops. Great time and mess was made by all with Cayn in S.T.E.A.M with bubbling explosions and experiments with the ultimate favourite -Wizard's Brew. Fun acting and drama games with Scott was a big hit with all kids having a blast acting out their fantasy and imagination. We have excellent photos of the day.
