Kumon Diligent welcomed over 300 parents and students at its 3rd Advanced Student Award Ceremony held on Sunday August 26, 2018 at the Indera Kayangan Ballroom, Empire Hotel & Country Club. Students working on material up to five years above their current school grade level were presented with medals and trophies by Mr Hiroshi Abe, Chargé d’Affaires ad interim at the Embassy of Japan to Brunei Darussalam and Awang Sofian Erwan bin Mohammad, Acting Head, Private Education Unit, Ministry of Education.
As Brunei’s first and largest Kumon Centre, Kumon Diligent has worked with more than 350 students since 2015. “We have seen the Kumon Method transform children into more confident, motivated and independent learners. A number of our students are also on track to finish the Kumon programme and become Brunei’s first Kumon Completers! Students have to persevere through and conquer innumerable challenges during the programme. This becomes particularly apparent as they tackle material above school grade level that they have never learnt; for example, a Year 1 student solving simultaneous equations. By this stage, we believe we’ve equipped them with life and learning skills that are applicable outside of school and for perpetuity,” shared Caley Lim, Chief Instructor at Kumon Diligent.
Having reached its 60th anniversary in 2018, Kumon is the world’s leading after-school enrichment programme for students from pre-school through university. Kumon enables students to actively develop their self-learning skills rather than passively receive instructions from Instructors. Kumon students study independently at a level that is appropriate to their ability. By progressing in small steps, they gain the confidence and knowledge to solve challenging problems. This individualised self-learning method has effectively improved the study skills of millions of students worldwide, maximised their potential and nurtured them to be the best they can be. As of August 2018, over 4.3 million students have been benefitting from Kumon study in 50 countries and regions across the globe.
Kumon Diligent is open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and is located at Unit 31, Ground Floor, BT Complex, Kg Jaya Setia, Bandar Seri Begawan BB2713, Brunei Darussalam.
