As we come to the end of another school year, it is great to reflect on the many blessings we have received this year, the friendships we have made, the challenges we have met and worked through and the achievements we have celebrated. We have much to be thankful for.
Alhamdulillaah. on average the students' overall maths results have improved and their overall attitude towards learning mathematics has improved significantly. The standards have been lifted and the data shows that students' outcomes have improved.
In 2018 there were only two students in the 5.3 Year 9 Maths class however next year there will be an increase in the number of students in the Year 10 5.3 maths class. This indicates the fact that the students' performance has improved. Stage 4 Maths classes will be streamed meaning we will be grouping students according to their abilities.
The objective is to allow like students to move ahead at a pace that matches their abilities. Within a streamed class setting the teacher is able to set a suitable pace for the class and maintain that pace. There is hardly any risk of leaving anyone behind. The entire class is challenged at a level gauged to be appropriate for the whole group. Also, in a streamed classroom the students are able to motivate each other because they possess similar abilities, move ahead at the same pace because there are no major disparities in ability within the stream and grow in confidence and self-esteem since no one is made to feel inferior among his/her peers.
Overall, the students and their parents should be commended for all their efforts this year.
I take this opportunity to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday and look forward to seeing you in the coming new year insha'Allah.
