Local Kumon students honoured at awards ceremony

by Editor

Students from the Kumon Lowton Study Centre celebrated their achievements at an Advanced Student Honour Roll (ASHR) awards ceremony held at the end of last year.

Awards were dished out at the event, held at St Mary’s Church Community Hall on Tuesday 19 December 2023, in recognition of the students’ success and continued development studying the Kumon Maths and English Programmes.

Students and their parents attended the awards ceremony, followed by a Christmas Party.

Kumon Instructor, Elizabeth Forrester presented students with their certificates and medals for their achievement of reaching the Kumon International Standard, and in some cases, surpassing it, meaning they are studying advanced work in comparison to their peers world-wide. The ceremony also encouraged and motivated students who have yet to reach ASHR status.

Amongst those students recognised were Fred (Year 2), who has studied Kumon for 3 years. He has achieved 2 years ahead of school age in maths and 3 years ahead in English. Meanwhile Ted (Year 3), who has also studied Kumon for 3 years, has achieved 2 years ahead of school age in English and should receive his 2-year certificate in maths very soon!

Daily Kumon study requires dedication and perseverance from both the student and their parents. This ceremony is a chance to not only reward and celebrate students’ achievements but to also thank parents for their ongoing commitment to their child’s Kumon studies.

Elizabeth Forrester, said: “My team and I thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas party! We love seeing our students light up playing games and getting to know each other a little better.

“It was also a time for all of us to gather and honour the exceptional accomplishments of our students. Many of them have achieved phenomenal milestones this year in studying 6 months, 2 years and 3 years ahead of their age.

“Witnessing the perseverance, dedication and hard work these students have put into their academic pursuits gives me immense pride. As an educator, seeing our students excel and reach new heights is truly gratifying. I am incredibly proud of each and every one of them, and I have no doubt that their passion and commitment will continue to lead them to even greater successes in the future”.

Staff at Kumon Lowton Study Centre get into the spirit following the awards event.


About Kumon

Established for more than 60 years, the Kumon programmes enable children of all ages and abilities to develop into confident, independent learners with strong study skills.

Students initially start at a comfortable level with a focus on building a strong foundation in the subject. They will develop invaluable study skills such as concentration, pace and rhythm before progressing to more advanced work.

Each student that signs up to Kumon pays a small registration fee of £40. You’ll then choose which subjects your child needs help with, and the fee per subject is £70 per month.

But, between 1 February 2024 and 15  March 2024, you’ll be able to try the Kumon method of learning completely free for one week. Ask about their free trial when you get in touch.
