European WiseOnes

Thursday, May 11, 2017 posted by wiseones 9:03 pm

Now that we are international in Oceania with the signing of a New Zealand Licencee in the south island, we are expanding into Europe next. I have recently been in Ireland, south and north, contacting teachers and organizations to see what interest there is in their schools and in parents.

The website is . If you know any schools or teachers who might like to run a Licenced gifted education business I can make it easy for them. I am actually an Irish citizen through my mother so I understand the people and their lovely sense of humour. I got some good extra teaching aids from Dublin and Enniscorthy castles.

Last year I visited the Atlantaquarium in Galway and wrote  a unit on Disguises as a result.  I will be back in Ireland later this year so I have a definite powerful interest in assisting the gifted children like my cousins’  grandchildren. This applies to the north as well as the south of the country.

In the plane from Singapore I was watching the pilots view of the world and had another idea. I was fascinated by the Java Trench just south of Indonesia and thought of the fascinating things I know about ocean trenches. I feel another unit coming on. I wonder what would be a good name for such a way out environment? Suggest some ideas.

Starting WiseOnes in Europe and UK

Monday, April 10, 2017 posted by wiseones 9:13 am

Every time I attend a Conference in Gifted Education people ask me about WiseOnes and tell me, “We haven’t got anything like that here”

So I am heading over to give it a go. See

If you know any great teachers in Europe or UK who may like to run a gifted education business with all our help and 20 years of experience then let them know to email and I will get in touch with them.

Our 20th Annual Conference is at Oakleigh Grammar Conference Centre on 21st October. Email as above to go on the list for information.

World Gifted Conference 2017 in Sydney

Monday, February 20, 2017 posted by wiseones 9:56 am

Pat Truscott and I had  a great time catching up with so many educators interested in gifted education.  We intend to share some of what we learned at our own WiseOnes 20th Annual Conference on 21st October at Oakleigh Grammar Conference Centre at 9.30. Our gust speaker is Sophie Murphy who is working with Prof John Hattie at Melbourne University . Sophie is  a recognized speaker and leader who will challenge us to go beyond great in providing for the gifted. Joanne Zacharopoulos will talk to school leaders about her role and what she does to enable the program to be so successful at the school.  Pat Truscott is sharing about the identification process as she attended talks about that at the World Conference.  I wi;.share about an amazing talk I went to called The Renaissance Man.  It was nothing like what Pat or I had tried to guess.  Profound giftedness is something else.


REMEMBER 21st October at Oakleigh Grammar Conference Centre Willesden Road , starts  9.30 end 12.30. SPECIAL PRICE for OG  PARENTS. Send emia p for a reminder to be sent to you.

A flier will come home from school at OG but Licencees will send fliers to other areas.

Email now so you don’t forget

LearnOnline now available for fast learners

Friday, February 17, 2017 posted by wiseones 11:14 am

We now have a service for remote schools , home schoolers and those whose school does not have the program . It uses video conferencing using desktop sharing with teaching aids in pdf format, and emailed worksheets. The groups are even smaller with max 6 so the teacher can see all of them all the time and they write on their own space on the whiteboard.

We have a website

I have done this with Algebra and Grammar and the children, all boys, were enthusiastic and the results were amazing. One boy who never did anything at school and was not considered gifted by his primary school all of a sudden got a B and this year has won a leadership position at his college. What a turn around!  Another had never faced a challenge at school before and learned and was excited by such a new idea. Pleased parents make me happy.

Currently available

Algebra, Grammar, 7 Steps to Genius,  Thinking Skills, Ads that Sell, Fibonacci and Mensa, Ancient Greece, Vikings, Draw with the Masters. These will run through 2018 also then change. More will be added as we get more teacher contractors for the work.

Please email to suggest what you would like to enrol your child in now.

Price depends on how many are in the group. We can take up to 6  so see who else you know who might be interested.  Extra fee for Paypal payments. We have to pay teachers, IP, IT, tax, marketing.

Group of 6   $125 each;  group of 5  $151;  group of 4 $190 each, group of 3 $252    one child alone $755  .   Prices as at 2017

Also my Master Speller program uses a different technique that relies on a video meeting by Skype  every weekday for 2 weeks that lasts 5 minutes. That makes the children happy and their teachers too so if your child can’t spell give it a go. It works for children with Irlen syndrome too. Email Price is $150 for the 10 sessions. Time usually is just before they go to school. The trial proved 80% successful at the trial school and the ones who did not learn had serious  medical problems with their eyes that had not been noticed before. So if there is a real problem we can maybe pick that up too.
