2016 tuition classes in full swing!
Tuition classes for our girls at Assunta primary school 2 under the HVT programme commenced on Thursday 28 January 2016, running from 10.15am to 12.30pm.
This year we have a total of 36 pupils and 9 voluntary teachers. Pupils from Standard 2 to Standard 4 are taught Mathematics and English Language while pupils from Standard 5 to Standard 6 are taught Mathematics, English language and Science.
The students are taught in the following age groups:
Standard 2 (eight years old) – 7 pupils taught by teacher Suhaila
Standard 3 (nine years old) – 4 pupils taught by teachers Mariam and Rajee
Standard 4 (ten years old) – 7 pupils taught by teachers Kanaga and Norliah
Standard 5 (eleven years old) – 10 pupils taught by teachers Shanthi and Zuli
Standard 6 (twelve years old) – 8 pupils taught by teacher Jeannie
Teacher Adelene remains in charge of improving the pupils’ literacy skills in English.
After two classes, the school was closed for a week for the Chinese New Year break. Classes resumed on the 18 February and the girls were ecstatic to receive red packets (Ang Pow) and chocolates from their Chinese teachers.
“When I came to Assunta I could not even read a word. After attending HVT tuition I can read millions and millions of books! God bless them. I am given a school bag, stationery and meals. I am taught English, Mathematics and Science. God bless HVT!!”
