Did you see the Wednesday night Lateline story about Friday Night School in Richmond, inner Melbourne? Private school kids help refugee kids with homework…it’s been twenty years now AND 200 kids turn up to help!
Everyone, students and their mentors, are so happy in the process AND there is success. The learners learn and do well…and the tutors learn ‘other stuff’!
Good on the ABC for showing us such a wonderful, community ‘feel-good’ story.
It IS a good feeling to know you are helping another human being. How good for kids to feel this, a great foundation for future community input.
This Friday night class has been running for twenty years – are there others? If not, what a template!
Great work Margaret Gurry!
