HLS Student Annual Awards 2015

Each March, Horne Learning Services awards students in various categories:


1. Longest-attending students
2. Most-improved student
3. Top contributor


1. We are extremely conscious of those students who have been with us for the long-term. We appreciate the time, effort and money they have invested in us. Each year we identify the top 5 longest-attending students and give a little something back to them as a thank you for their loyalty.

2. Of course, the goal of teaching is to help students improve. We look for improvements in confidence, communication and competency. It is always very satisfying to observe how a once shy, quiet and sub-standard student has changed into a confident, vocal and capable one. So where there is big improvement, we like to recognise that.

3. Over the course of a year, we meet and teach a lot of students. Some of them come and go, but a large portion stay. Out of those, we credit one who stands out from the rest, one who participates with great effort in every aspect of our classes, one who we call the 'Top Contributor.'


Here are the recipients of these awards for the year of 2015:
