Exams are a huge commitment and they require your child to not only attend two lessons per week but to practise at home as well. If in the past years your child has been disappointed with their mark in their exam a class award would still be a great way to participate and enjoy the experience. Here is a little information form the RAD to help you make that decision and I am happy to discuss if you have further questions. Class Awards are led by a teacher and the examiner assesses the Class. The mark scheme for Class Awards is less detailed than exams, providing candidates with a broad overview of standard rather than a detailed breakdown. Successful candidates receive a certificate and a medal.
Primary Extra Lessons if sitting the Class Award: Children need to attend these days next term.
27th August, 3rd Sep, 10 September, 17th September
Friday 3:30 – 4:10pm. There will be an extra charge of $60 for these.
Millie is available on Thursday 3:30-5:00 for private lessons. If you would like a private with myself please email to arrange a time. Please use the following link to book a spot with Millie:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1mbykf3SrzCchEYlBDw8DJqU2n2-bINIi2asFcFL7HDc/edit#gid=0
