Mathematics is a key life skill, providing children with a means of making sense of the world in which they live. It is a proficiency, which involves confidence and competence with numbers, shapes, measures and statistics. It requires an understanding of the numbers system and an ability to solve problems in a variety of contexts.

  • Develop their mental agility in numeracy and the ability to have instant recall of basic facts.
  • Explain their strategies and talk about their mathematics, sharing ideas with others.

  • Learn to enjoy mathematics and have a positive attitude, approaching all problems with confidence and enthusiasm.
  • Reach their full potential and achieve their highest possible personal standards.
  • Develop their child’s ability to apply mathematics to the solution of real life problems, so that they can see the relevance of what is being taught.
