The Minister of Education, Diallo Rabain, concluded: “Bermuda, our goal is for all our students within the Bermuda Public School System to excel in math, and the BPSS Summer Math Programme is one of the stepping stones to achieve that goal.
“Previously, the BPSS Math Summer Programme accepted P3 – M3 students. As a commitment to improving math knowledge and skills for our students, the Math Team used feedback from parents to expand the programme to accept P2 students.
“The BPSS Summer Programme is an extension of the BPSS Math Intervention Programme and has been offered for the last three (3) years. It is a highly individualised programme that is linked to a student’s overall school performance, common assessments, and checkpoints.”
