Another Perfect Score in the Trinity College Graded Examinations in Communication Skills – Themis Lai

themis-lai

 

We have achieved another first at J Carter Centre for Public Speaking! Congratulations to our student Themis Lai for scoring 100 marks in the Trinity College Graded Examinations in Communication Skills – Grade 3.

In November 2016, at the tender age of 9 years, Themis was able to impress a tough examiner from United Kingdom with a speech based on a news article titled “Plot to attack Marina Bay with rocket from Batam foiled”. Although she is not the first student at our centre to achieve a perfect score in this exam, she is our youngest to date. Students attempting Grade 3 are usually 11 or 12 years old however Themis displayed an amazing talent in public speaking when she was doing the LAMDA Speaking in Public programme at age 8 and was talent spotted to move into the more challenging Trinity College Communication Skills programme by one of our trainers.

Themis is currently preparing for the Grade 4 examinations in May 2017 and will be completing her Grade 5 by end of 2017. We look forward to seeing her achieve even more amazing results this year.

If you are keen to enrol your child in our Trinity College Communication Skills programme, please call our centre at 67372700 for more information. We are currently registering students for semester 2 and places are filling up very fast. We will be offering classes ranging from Grade 2 to Grade 7 for semester 2.

Dear Parents,

We are officially launching our new 19 weeks DSA Preparation Course in January 2017. This course includes many activities that are conducted by various IP schools during the Direct School Admissions Selection Process. Jackeline Carter designed this course with the help of parents and students who had previously gone through the DSA process successfully. As every school conducts DSA differently, she has tried to incorporate as many of the methods used by all the schools so that the students will be ready for any of the schools. It also includes preparation for Trinity College Graded Examination in Communications – Grade 3 (Group Disscussions). You can include this certification  in your child’s portfolio to highlight your child’s communication ability.

Jackeline Carter will also work hand in hand with parents to ensure that all work is completed on time and to brief the parents on how to help their child prepare for DSA. Direct School Admissions are becoming more competitive and students can no longer achieve success on their own. Support must come from both parents and trainers. Follow up support will be given to all students after the conclusion of the course through email and updates.

This course is suitable for students who are keen to attempt DSA in 2018. dsa-prep-courseHowever, if your child is extremely shy and has difficulty sharing their views and opinions,  it may be advisable to sign up for one to one coaching in Primary 6 so that the trainer can focus solely on your child.

We have included a feedback from one of our parents whose child has benefited from one-to-one coaching:

Hi Jackeline,

Hope this finds you well. 

Like to share with you that N______ was offered a confirmed place in SOTA for Literary Arts. She is pleased and the family is very proud of her. I am over the moon that her efforts have reaped results and that she is able to pursue an area that she is interested in, on her secondary education journey. 

The interviews for visual arts and literary arts were gruelling – although she did not describe much about the respective auditions, I could tell from her expressions after, that she had a difficult time at both visual and literary interviews. I am just so proud that she was resilient enough to pull through them. Getting a place is really a bonus achievement. She has since been working hard to prepare for the coming exams. 

Would like to thank you for guiding N_____, and for being patient and flexible with her during her 3 sessions with you in May and June. Though her lack of response limited her getting the most of your usual DSA preparation, your modified approach to her reserved personality helped to prepare her for what to expect and boosted her esteem and confidence. 

All DSA Preparation Courses will be taught by Jackeline Carter, author of Success Strategies for Direct School Admissions – DSA. Currently, there are limited spaces left in two of the classes. If your child is in Primary 6 in 2018 and would like to attempt DSA, don’t wait any longer, call our centre at 67372700 to book your place. We are opened from Tuesdays to Fridays – 11 am to 7 pm, Saturdays – 10 am to 6 pm and Sundays – 10 am to 4 pm.

*From 2018 onwards, schools will not require students to take a GAT test so this segment will NOT be covered in the course.
