Kip Mcgrath: Get ahead, stay ahea
Why not make 2013 your best year ever!
Experience new breakthroughs with Kip McGrath’s Tutoring and Coaching. Why start 2013 with ‘We’ll see how it goes?’ Why not start with ‘Get Ahead and Stay Ahead’ instead! Don’t wait until you’re behind before you give us a call – after all it’s no fun playing catch-up! The secret of getting ahead is getting started, so call us now to enrol for Term one and we’ll arrange a no obligation, academic assessment and consultation. Term 1 begins for us on Monday February 4 and we are looking forward to the new School Year! This year Martin is teaching Maths and ICT at the High School (Year 9 - 11) and of course Jo continues in her Teaching role in Literacy Support at the school. We are adding to over 15 years together teaching at the school. We both also retain our passion for the difference we make at Kip McGrath. Our individualised tuition really does work and experiencing success at Kip McGrath can change a child’s attitude to school and to learning – and to life! Well done to our High Achievers! Congratulations to Tom Gray (year 13), the Dux of Wakatipu High School 2012. This prestigious award honours the top academic performer at Wakatipu High School. Tom has been attending Kip McGrath this year to ensure he got top grades in Physics, and last year for Calculus. He also received a Central Lakes Trust Scholarship, worth $2000. So if you think Kip McGrath is just for catch up you couldn’t be more wrong! Johann Kissick (year 13) was a recipient of a Margaret Templeton Scholarship. This tertiary study award will help him study Computer Science and French at Canterbury University, where we wish him every success. Om Shetty (year 5) performed outstandingly in the University of New South Wales’ ICAS papers. He gained High Distinction grades for English, putting him in the top one per cent in New Zealand. He also gained Distinction for Maths, Science, Spelling and Writing, where he was in the top 2 per cent, 4 per cent, 7 per cent and 14 per cent in NZ respectively. He topped the country in computer skills for Year 5 students sitting the ICAS exams, for which he received a medal at the University of Auckland Business School. He also received a Gold medal for Year 5 and 6 students at the Central Otago Spelling Championship. Outstanding! So remember– Kip isn’t just for catch-up. We can help you get ahead and stay ahead too!
