The college has launched a two-week Mathematics workshop targeting primary school Grade Five students. The workshop, which aims to develop a passion for Mathematics through interactive and fun activities, will see the participation of twenty-five (25) students from Sion Hill Government School, Calliaqua Anglican School, Belair Government School, Brighton Methodist School, and Fair Hall Government School.
During the launch, Director Nigel Scott stated that as a college we are answering a need within the country, in helping students to develop a more productive and positive approach to the study of Mathematics.
He hopes that the programme expands next year to allow for the participation of more students.
Scott also dubbed the students “honorary students of the SVGCC” because the two-weeks they will be based at our institution.
Featured speaker Kenneth Holder, Principal of the Petit Bordel Secondary School, in his address encouraged students to recognise the presence of Mathematics in their everyday surroundings and activities.
The workshop, being led by two of our Mathematics Lecturers, Dawn Scott and Samantha Porter, will run from August 8th – 19th, 2022, and is made possible through the generous support of the St. Vincent Cooperative Bank Ltd, and Bickles.
