EDUCATION AGAINST THE ODDS
Why educate your children? It seems a silly question because the benefits are obvious to everyone. The more you know, the more you have to contribute to society, either within your job or as a volunteer for your sports club, hobby/interest group or philanthropic enterprise. Education allows us to engage meaningfully in so many ways with others and helps make our lives and those who are dependent on us smoother, more interesting and rewarding. Who wouldn’t want that for their children?
Lots of us leave the education of our children up to our wonderful schools. We pay the fees, buy the uniforms, sort out the stationery and leave the rest up to the teachers. As a classroom teacher for many years, I felt the weight of expectation sit heavy on my shoulders for every child sat in front of me. For most of that time, I felt under resourced and was worried that I wasn’t doing a good job. I used to encourage my students to increase their own odds of passing and being educated by doing extra work outside of the classroom to maximise their chances of success.
We all take chances. We might have a flutter on lotto, with a very slim chance of winning, maybe even trade options on the stock exchange or go to the races, but, would you take chances with your child’s education? I was very surprised to find that only 53% of students achieved University Entrance last year! 53%! That means your child’s chances of success in achieving UE is 53%; not good enough in my mind. I think the benefits of a solid education are huge and cannot be left to chances like that. You can lift your child’s chances of academic success and invest in their future by giving them as much out of classroom support you can.
That’s where we come in. We partner with you to support their school learning and ensure their growth and development. Why don’t you call us today to increase your child’s odds of academic success. Call us now on 3543211.
