Last week, trainers from Suas visited The Institute of Education to run a training workshop for our 4th year students who will be volunteering for the Suas maths mentoring programme.
During training, our students learned to use math games to help children aged 7-8 years develop their math abilities through the Suas buddy system. Now that they have completed the training, our 4th years will volunteer twice a week for a 7 week period in local Deis schools. Our volunteers will be working with their buddies, playing enjoyable number games in subjects like addition, subtraction, halving, and doubling in order to help the children develop their math skills, have fun and build their confidence in the subject. We would like to thank Suas for this wonderful volunteering opportunity and we wish our 4th years luck!
