Ku­mon brings out the best in stu­dents

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - PARENTING -

IN Ku­mon, stu­dents who are study­ing at least six months ahead of their ac­tual school grade are given the ti­tle of “Ad­vanced Stu­dent”. With about 40,000 Ku­mon stu­dents in Malaysia, nearly half of them have achieved this sta­tus – clear ev­i­dence that a child’s po­ten­tial has no bound­aries.

Ad­vanced Stu­dent Fo­rum

Ad­vanced Stu­dent Fo­rum (ASF) is an an­nual event held by Ku­mon to recog­nise stu­dents’ achieve­ments – those who have com­pleted their pro­grammes and who suc­cess­fully achieved five years ahead of their school grade. On Nov 9, 226 pro­gramme com­pleters and 602 five-year ad­vanced stu­dents were in­vited to at­tend ASF.

In Ku­mon, an in­di­vid­ual’s po­ten­tial can­not be mea­sured by his school grade or age and it is never too early to pur­sue chil­dren’s po­ten­tials, as one’s po­ten­tial can be nur­tured to ac­cel­er­ate per­sonal de­vel­op­ment.

“When you meet chal­lenges in fu­ture, re­mem­ber this award cer­e­mony today and how you have over­come them to reach this sta­tus,” said Ku­mon Malaysia gen­eral man­ager, Masahiro Takatsu at the ASF 2013.

By hav­ing the ASF as a plat­form to recog­nise and ac­knowl­edge stu­dents’ ef­fort in at­tain­ing ex­cel­lent achieve­ments, Ku­mon be­lieves it will in­spire oth­ers to con­tinue achiev­ing a greater scale in their Ku­mon stud­ies.

This year, 16-year-old Ashwini Ravi who has com­pleted the Ku­mon English Pro­gramme at the age of 12, swept guests off their feet with her Bharathanatyam dance per­for­mance. Ku­mon is proud to name a few out­stand­ing stu­dents’ achieve­ments:

Toru Ku­mon, the late founder of the Ku­mon Method be­lieves that with the cre­ation of the Ad­vanced Stu­dent Hon­our Roll, oth­ers will be able to see how far in­di­vid­ual stu­dents can progress in their Ku­mon stud­ies.

The true ef­fec­tive­ness of Ku­mon Method lies in de­vel­op­ing an av­er­age stu­dent into an out­stand­ing one.

The im­por­tance of in­di­vidu- alised study is that stu­dents are al­lowed to start their learn­ing jour­ney from an in­di­vid­u­alised easy level.

Stu­dents will be able to progress at their own pace and slowly gain knowl­edge be­yond their school grade.

The ASF also de­liver a clear mes­sage to the pub­lic that ev­ery child has great po­ten­tial and abil­i­ties and it is able to un­leash them us­ing Ku­mon Method.

Ku­mon Method has not only helped stu­dents sur­pass their lim­its, it has also helped them in un­lock­ing and gain­ing es­sen­tial skills in life.

Ku­mon stu­dents learn to be self-dis­ci­plined, in­de­pen­dent and well-or­gan­ised.

When chil­dren are ca­pa­ble in han­dling com­pli­cated ma­te­ri­als and go be­yond school grade through their own abil­i­ties, it is be­lieved they will have the con­fi­dence and courage to take up chal­lenges in their fu­ture.
