This paper reports on a study aiming to examine the attitudes of 166 Catholic primary school teachers in New South Wales towards educational provisions for gifted and talented students. The results revealed that teachers strongly supported the need for special educational provisions for gifted and talented students, and mainly preferred within-class enrichment and group programming strategies rather than acceleration approaches.
