extra classes

Many of our Geckos have talents and skills beyond the every day curriculum. Some are excelling in music, others in Chinese and a few in art, plus many more areas. When the opportunity arises, we want to be able to support each kid achieve their potential in their individual strengths and passions. Our young adults also attend out of hours English classes as they are different levels and have many other commitments that a set time for all does not suit anymore. Most now attend evening classes to fit in with their intense Khmer studies and work experience. In addition we have students who want to keep improving, to challenge themselves and work hard ... and even though we provide extra tuition for the Year 9 and 12 National Certificate Exams, we do have other year groups wanting to take advantage of more Maths/Science/History/Khmer classes and we would love to be able to yes to their commitment to achieve the best grades possible. If you would like to contribute to this opportunity, please let us know.
