The school year is starting up again, so it’s time for the community to pull together to help Dereel students achieve their best in 2017.
Every Tuesday from 5-6 pm there will be Free Community Tutoring sessions running in the Dereel Community Centre. Students at all levels are supported; primary school, high school and even some university subjects. Our local volunteer tutors have academic and industry experience in a wide range of subject areas. Students are encouraged to come along whether for help with particular studies, or just to make some time to focus on homework.
The range of subjects we support is wide; including Maths, Health Sciences, Technology and Business. If there is a specific subject area you are interested in, contact us to explore the options. Community members who are keen to support local learning and have a good understanding of school subjects are very welcome to be involved. The lead tutors each hold current Working With Children Checks. Light healthy snacks will be available to students. Gold coin donations are invited to cover venue hire costs.
We will also be holding sessions on topics that help students and parents/carers to learn more effectively. The first of these will be held on 21 February as Games to Help Develop Number Sense and Aid Basic Computation, facilitated by our Maths teacher, Erin. Parents and students alike are invited to this fun and informative workshop.
Whatever you can do to help local students will be appreciated. Spread the word so that no-one misses out on this valuable opportunity. Bring your kids, tell other parents, and come along to participate. Let’s build a community with a passion for learning.
