During the year, your child has been taught many important skills at GEA and at school. The school holiday period is long enough to relax and have fun but it is also long enough for those important skills to be forgotten if not practised.
To avoid this, GEA has designed a few school holiday intensive programs to keep your child thinking and learning during the break.
