Kumon centre celebrates students’ hard work and successes

Math and reading centre holds awards/bowling event

The Abbotsford Kumon Math and Reading Centre on Trethewey Street recently held its annual awards/bowling event to celebrate students’ hard work and successes.

The event began with awards presentations to students to recognize their hard work as well as academic achievements.

Afterwards, all students were invited to enjoy disco bowling at Galaxy Bowl.

Shirley Tam, director of the Abbotsford Kumon Math and Reading Centre, said she and her staff members believe strongly in encouraging students to work towards the advanced student honour roll, to study challenging material, as well as to develop excellent work habits.

She said 35 to 40 per cent of the centre’s students consistently make it onto the Kumon North America advanced student honour roll.

As they have done in previous years, students and their families gave back to the community by donating all proceeds collected to the Abbotsford Community Services’ Food Bank.
