Helping My Child with Maths – There is great interest in this course. After midterm break, I will be advertising for places in this Tuesday morning course, which will run for 6 weeks. It will be targeted at parents of pupils in the Senior School only so focus will be on Maths skills and content for 3rd to 6th class. Keep an eye out for my text as spaces will fill quickly.
