“My son who is 9 has now completed 2 terms of ALOHA, he absolutely loves it and it has helped him immensely” – Victoria (ALOHA Parent)

“My boys loved every moment of the ALOHA summer camp, they made lovely new friends & learned lots of new things. I would highly recommend the ALOHA programme” – Lorraine ( ALOHA Parent)

The word ALOHA is an acronym for Abacus Learning of Higher Arithmetic. ALOHA Mental Arithmetic is a mental development programme which enhances the brain development of students through the use and visualisation of the abacus. In 1993, Mr Loh Mun Sung decided to create a programme which, based on the use of the abacus, would go beyond and would enhance the co-ordination and development of both cerebral hemispheres.

Research has shown that using the abacus improves children’s ability to calculate mental equations and develop cognitive abilities such as attention, concentration, creativity, imagination, spatial orientation, listening, analytical ability, photographic memory and observation. Students develop the ability to visualise a math problem by regular practise of the abacus and eventually the student will learn to solve the problem without the aid. By using this technique, students develop a photographic memory. Much more than a math class, ALOHA Mental Arithmetic classes include didactic games and group activities in order for children to develop other lifetimes benefits.

Throughout the programme, students exercise both the right and left hemispheres of the brain simultaneously, making the most of their intellectual ability. Research has found that children will experience an improvement in all their school subjects, especially in Mathematics.

Our annual ALOHA Mental Arithmetic National Calculation Championship took place this year in June 2016. This fun and educational event saw over 80 students complete as many calculations as possible in 5 minutes using the abacus. We can’t wait for next year’s event!

Currently, ALOHA Mental Arithmetic Ireland is in 22 community centres & schools through Dublin and Meath.

The next term of ALOHA Mental Arithmetic classes will begin in February 2017.
