Summer Bridging Course

The year of 2022 sees yet another unprecedented summer for many students. From extended online lessons to protracted Spring/Easter break, both international and local schools across the city have met many challenges to provide a stable and proper learning environment for their students. NTK specially designed a summer programme to help students to consolidate this year’s learning and prepare for next academic year’s schooling.

Whether it is skill or knowledge, learning is a process requiring proper scaffolding to strengthen the retention for its application during assessment and exams. Over the past 2 years, the unfortunate disruption in learning has weakened this process; students expressed difficulty to retain what they have learned in school. It is more important than ever to use the summer time to cement their understanding of important concepts.
