Kumon holds Student Awards to celebrate the success of its students

On 27 April 2008, Kumon, a franchise providing supplementary education, held its first 2008 regional High-Level Student Awards at The Quays Theatre at The Lowry in Manchester. According to the company, these annual awards are a celebration of outstanding student achievement within the Kumon programme and are held throughout the year in six different regions within the UK and Ireland.

The theme of the awards was ‘At the Theatre’ with schoolchildren performing a short play at the beginning of the ceremony. There were also be a number of presentations from students and instructors, a raffle, number board challenges and a fun mini-mathathon for students and parents, in aid of Save the Children.

The highest accolade, the Inspirational Student Award, was presented to Daniel Chow, 15, a student at the Lytham St Annes study centre. Daniel has been studying Kumon for six years and studies both maths and English at a high level. Sue Osborne, who runs the centre, explained why Daniel won the award, “Kumon study requires a certain amount of commitment and tenacity from both parent and child in order to be successful. By adopting the ‘little and often’ approach, Daniel has really applied himself and as a direct result has made continuous and steady progress as he has risen up through the various study levels.”

The Kumon organisation was founded in Japan in 1958. 50 years on, the franchise network now stretches over 45 countries. According to the company, over 4 million children study Kumon across the world. The franchise provides the children it teaches with courses in reading, writing and arithmetic. The courses not only aim to make them more proficient in the subject but also, the company says, to help them become self-reliant, independent learners who are able to realise their potential throughout secondary school and beyond.
