Homework Club in the News!
Lovely Rotary Prahran member & "mum to be" Samantha Padmore featured in the Stonnington Leader story of 22nd August, calling for help for our terrific Homework Club at the Horace Petty housing estate in Malvern Road, South Yarra.
Our children are Prep to Grade 6 from 2 local primary schools, from varying ethnic backgrounds including Tibetan, Somali, Indonesian, Fijian & Aussie, and we try to pair a volunteer with every child to assist with reading, comprehension, spelling, basic arithmetic & times tables and even with a bit of fun! Our volunteers over 18 must have a current Working With Children Check & provide 3 referees, senior secondary students are also welcome as volunteers and don't need a WWCC.
Please come & help? The kids are great & it's really making a difference to their education, confidence & hopes for the future!
