My name is Neil Capps and I have the privilege to be leading the GCC Maths Department this year. Students from Years 7 to 10 will be graduating on the new Queensland system of external exams that will be worth 50% of their result in Year 12. Our current Year 11 students will be the last that can graduate with an OP score.
I will be opening L5 for Maths help every Monday lunch time and Maths teachers will be in the Library from 3pm to 4pm every Thursday for Maths Homework Help.
We will be working on building students’ mental maths capacity this year. At our house, my children answer maths questions like multiplication tables before dessert which is a simple way to help them develop their mental arithmetic skills.
Please contact your child’s Maths teacher if you have any questions during the year.
Neil Capps, Head of Maths
