Opportunity Class (OC)

Ironbark Ridge is one of 76 schools across NSW that is home to a Year 5 and Year 6 Opportunity Class.

Opportunity classes cater for academically gifted Year 5 and Year 6 students with high potential. These classes help students to learn by grouping them with students of similar ability, using specialised teaching methods and educational materials at the appropriate level.

The High Performing Students Team administers the opportunity class placement process. Application can not be made through the school, nor do Ironbark Ridge students have special access to these state-administered classes. Please visit the NSW Dept. of Education High Performing Students website for more information.

2021 OC Information

Due to the COVID-adjusted timetable for entry into Year 5 OC in 2021 we have cancelled our usual orientation meeting, and have instead included a short movie-slideshow with information here for parents and students considering accepting a position with us. Enjoy!
