The Saint Vincent and the Grenadines Community College – SVGCC, on Monday, August 8, launched a two-week Mathematics workshop targeting primary school Grade Five students.
According to the college’s Marketing and Communication Department, the workshop aims to develop a passion for Mathematics through interactive and fun activities.
Some twenty-five (25) students will participate in the workshop which will run from August 8th – 19th, 2022.
The participating students are from the Sion Hill Government School, Calliaqua Anglican School, Belair Government School, Brighton Methodist School, and the Fair Hall Government School.
The workshop is being led by two of the college’s Mathematics Lecturers – Dawn Scott and Samantha Porter.
During the launch, Director Nigel Scott stated that as a college we are answering a need within the country, in helping students to develop a more productive and positive approach to the study of Mathematics.
He hopes that the programme expands next year to allow for the participation of more students.
Scott also dubbed the students “honorary students of the SVGCC” because the two-weeks they will be based at our institution.
Featured speaker Kenneth Holder, Principal of the Petit Bordel Secondary School, in his address encouraged students to recognise the presence of Mathematics in their everyday surroundings and activities.
The workshop is made possible through the support of the St. Vincent Cooperative Bank Ltd, and Bickles.
