The 2019 edition of SAP’s long vacation classes has been organised with 30 pupils benefiting from the classes.
The six-week classes offered pupils, mostly children with learning problems the opportunity to be assessed for their learning difficulties.
The pupils received individualised learning support to help them learn better and adequately prepare them for the next academic year beginning September 2019.
SAP’s vacation classes focused on developing pupils’ competencies in literacy, numeracy and ICT. Emphasis was placed on phonics in helping pupils to develop reading skills using the FonixGH reading methodology developed by SAP.
The classes also used multisensory approach to teaching and learning and utilised each pupil’s preferred learning style especially in the study of mathematics and ICT.
Both pupils and parents have been sharing their feedback on the classes:
Benjamin (Class 5):“I like the way they teach me at the vacation classes because they have more time for me. At first, I couldn't spell but now I can spell and read.”
Manley (Class 6):“The vacation classes have helped me to know how to do long division and write essays. The teachers at the vacation classes have more time for me than at my school. I will like to come back again.”
Cyrus (JHS 1):“The vacation classes have been very helpful to me. Previously I couldn’t read or spell but now I can read and spell as well. I prefer the teaching here than at my school because the teachers have more time for me here and teach me to understand. I would like to come back again.”
Evelyn (parent):“Since my son started coming to the classes, at least he can now differentiate between some letters and write them. It is a small improvement but it is better than before.”
Godknows (parent):“I have seen a remarkable improvement in my sons’ performance. I wish they had started this classes earlier.”
