ACADEMY UPDATES
22 November 21: Enrol now for Term 1, 2022.

As the end of the year approaches and COVID restrictions continue to ease, the excitement grows for school students as they anticipate the summer holidays.  

After the year students have had, they deserve a break.  

This schooling year has been characterised by shutdowns, lockdowns and home-schooling. It’s been full of unexpected change requiring constant adjustments to adapt to a new normal. A summer of relaxation and enjoyment is just what they need. It’s what we all need.  

But what happens when the end of January comes and students return to school, only to realise that the last year of disruptions has created learning gaps? Or that they are not as prepared as they thought for the upcoming Selective or Scholarship tests they have set their sights on? 

As exciting as the freedom of summer holidays can be, it doesn’t hurt to plan ahead and consider how to help your child prepare for another school year. One way to do that is to enrol your child in a summer holiday course to brush up on their learning.  

At Global Education Academy, we offer several summer holiday courses to support students as they ease into a new stage of learning. Keep reading to discover what’s on at Global Education Academy this summer.

Through our courses: 

  • Your child is taught by a highly qualified teacher with extensive experience 
  • Your child is actually learning rather than just doing worksheets 
  • Individualised support is provided in a small class of less than 10 students 
  • Teachers give feedback on exactly how your child is tracking
