Young Kumon talents receive recognition

More than 200 ‘Kumon students’ were recognised and rewarded for their ability in mastering English and Mathematics above their school grade level of learning at a ceremony held at the Lynfield College in Auckland on November 25, 2012.

Kumon Instructor Perminder Gill organised the event at which medals and certificates were presented to outstanding students.

Basic skills

She is known for nurturing students to develop sound English and Mathematics skills enabling them to achieve high grades in all areas of learning.

“I have had the privilege of assisting every child to build fundamental skills in English and Mathematics during the time that I have spent in running a Kumon Education Centre. The aim is to advance the learning of students beyond what they may be expected to learn according to their age,” she said.

“Through the ‘Kumon Method,’ these students not only gained skills in English and Mathematics material of a very senior level, but also developed confidence, self-motivation and independence from exploring content often unfamiliar to them. They now excel beyond the Kumon Centre, in their classrooms and in their chosen careers,” she added.

Students from the Kumon Lynfield Centre attended the Advanced Student Forum held in November at the Viaduct Events Centre, where they were recognised for studying three years ahead.

The Advanced Student Forum is an annual event at which thousands of students in New Zealand and Australia receive awards, medals and certificates.

The ceremony also challenges the brightest students to continue setting goals to realise their potential.

Year 6 student Saakshi (11), from the Lynfield Centre, received an award for studying Mathematics of a senior high school level. She is keen to obtain master quadratic equations and the maxima and minima of functions, six years ahead of school grade content.

Nine-year-old Aswin, who is studying advanced mathematics, is a Year 5 student, keen on becoming a professional cricket player.
