This happened to me in primary (elementary) school
I basicically just messed in class, didnt do my homework etc, because it was too boring and easy
One of the main things was texting in class (your child has a phone?)
I did get accepted for a gifted students course in the capital, but ultimately I was too young to go on my own, and my parents couldnt afford coarse + staying in Dublin for three weeks
In the end I fell behind in one subject, and even now, have still not caught up despite working hard on it
