Pressure Makes Diamonds

During this week the students had their monthly tests for September. Each month they have mark reading tests. It is a way to engage them in their studies, to help them think critically about what they are learning, and to check on what they need to review. For the teachers it is very important. It gives them crucial feedback on their curriculum and teaching methods. The students are motivated by the opportunity to prove themselves, but also feel some stress and pressure to perform. Pressure makes diamonds.
