Harmony Day

Tomorrow is Harmony Day and there will be a celebratory parade on the Basketball Courts at 9:15am. Don’t forget to wear your traditional dress or the colour orange. Let’s do our best to make a difference. We’re all equal and we all need to work harmoniously to build a better tomorrow.

 

Fractions

hwf-adding-2

 

Adding or subtracting fractions with the same denominator is easy. All you have to do is to add or subtract the numerators.
And it is always a good idea to make your result “nice” by converting it to a mixed number and simplifying if possible.

Example:

Find 1 + 2
5 5

Both fractions have the same denominator of 5, so we can simply add the numerators:

1 + 2 = 3
5 5 5

Example:

Find 7 3
8 8

Both fractions have the same denominator of 8, so we can simply subtract the numerators:

7 3 = 4 = 1
8 8 8 2

NOTE that the result was simplified (the numerator and  the denominator divided by 4).

The students of 5K enjoyed an educational and informative First Aid training program on Friday. The students were engaged and learnt all about DRS ABCD.

As St John Ambulance is a registered charity, receiving no government funding, student training was funded through generous donations and proceeds from the sale of other First Aid training and First Aid kits.
