Year 5 English, Maths & General Ability Launchpad

Booster Program

The perfect introductory course to Year 5 at North Shore Coaching for those parents who want skills consolidation for their child but may feel our Fastrain program may be too academically challenging at the current moment. Many parents discover that this course is a perfect ‘launchpad’ as, once their children gain confidence, they are then ready for our Fastrain courses. Launchpad offers a comprehensive exploration of English, maths & general ability but at a less academically demanding level than our Fastrain courses.
