St. Mary’s receives helpful software
Students of St. Mary’s Primary School preparing for the Common Entrance Examination can now benefit from the use of the Study Steps Common Entrance English and Mathematics software.
As part of their ongoing relationship with the school, Goddard Enterprises Ltd. presented the educational and interactive software to the IT Department to assist pupils with their studies.
Divisional General Manager, Human Resources and Community Relations, Jennifer Bradshaw-Wood, said she was pleased to present the software, which would assist the students with their preparation in a fun but educational way. She encouraged the students to take advantage of the opportunities that the software provides.
Principal Jennifer Robinson accepted the contribution on behalf of the school and in expressing thanks to GEL for their on-going support, said they continue to benefit from the library that was installed there back in 2006 and which is still in use, as well the scholarships to graduating students.
She noted that the software would not only assist the current Class 4 students with their preparation for the Common Entrance as the Class 3 teachers will also be taking advantage of the increased technology. She assured GEL that it would be put to very good use and said she looked forward to the company’s continued support.
The software presented will be installed on 15 computers in the lab which would mean that 30 children at any one time would be able to benefit from the exposure to this valuable tool.
The Study Steps software was designed by Ramona Rollins-Eli and Danny Fenty of Study Steps to augment the in-class learning for pupils from ages seven to 11 and especially those for whom the Common Entrance examination is imminent.
