Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Apr 30, 2018 6:00:00 AM

Reading is the single most effective way you can help your child to build his or her vocabulary. Strong vocabulary can help your son communicate and express himself better, and will be a benefit when he starts school. While we know that nothing can replace the benefits of reading, there are other avenues available that can help build our children’s vocabulary skills and engage them on a different level.

How schools can meet the individual needs of your child

Posted by Fabienne Arora on Dec 7, 2015 6:00:00 AM

Not so long ago, schools delivered curriculums in a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Many students struggled to grasp what their teachers expected of them.

Boys who need social and emotional support are also well catered for under the TESS umbrella.
