I have never had such a tiresome weekend! From Friday last, it dawned on me that the European colleges and school tours were rapidly approaching.
I knew, but it seemed that students fell out of sorts with Maths as we scrambled to find resolute resources.
Mock exams ran from Monday to Wednesday of this week, with a few taking it on Saturday. Results will be next day. Thanks Alex Wong, for the attention to the new slogan for Versan. Loving it. Now we patent! Smile.
Back to the weekend, so I held the PTA on Friday. Great. Parents got closure, but we ran out of books. The heat is on to complete applications, but the day went from 6 am to midnight. Saturday had classes, but consultations led us to midnight. Sunday also led us there....
The term is coming to a close for those sitting the October exam. I am trying desperately to slay the great Math fear....many had not tried to seek assistance at the start of July, so we are making a few last ditch efforts.
In the week of October 2, 2017, Dr. Gunter has agreed to come in for a Marathon session. The date will be announced.
The students who attended the Diagnostic at the Math Clinic laid bare a bigger issue...that there were gaps in foundation knowledge of Math education in 9th and 10th grade Algebra.
Watch this space for the date.
Next week is the last class for SAT/GRE students who test early October. Mock exams are slated for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The times are 4-8 pm.
Please call in and select your slot. Or day of tes...
At the onset of SAT classes, I advised all and sundry that this Math covers The topics in Additional Maths, Pure Mathematics and CSEC maths.
Students were advised to get help early as there were gaps to be filled whilst the SAT classes were in motion.
That advisory fell on deaf ears.
Now, the panic sets in. So, on Friday, The Math Clinic on Shortwood road will do diagnostic imaging on the gaps in one's mathematical education. Do not miss it, if only to salvage your defunct Math skills.
You will be given an oral report. We at Versan will need that report.
Please google the location for its number and location.
I am afraid if you let this slip, you may let your Maths Healing lay dormant for a long time.
SAT REGISTRATION FOR NOVEMBER
It is time, those doing SAT 11 exams in November..it...
We send out a prayer to those in India, Bangladesh, Texas, Antigua, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Florida and Bahamas, all those in the wake of this hurricane, Category 5. We hope lives and property will be spared.
Last week I spoke about the boys enjoying oxtail and rice and peas, leaving out their picture. This week, I did not forget. They are awaiting clearance for flying and will all soon be airborne. My boys!
Everyone should be registered by now. Yes? I think I have to do Ms. Henry's and Vassell. Then all done.
Our web designer got married and we should see some funky photos of our dear John Adams, the man who makes our blog so great.
And, better news, most of the summer students have completed 75% of their Commonapp applications. Whoopee.
