School engagement

Sticking with schooling.

Students who engage fully with school can look to a brighter future. We work with primary and secondary aged children to keep them interested in going to school.

School engagement programs

Empowering young people.

Our school engagement programs work with students who are at risk of disengaging from school and their families.

These programs support the wellbeing of children and their families and help to build on strengths, increase school attendance, improve school connectedness and get  more involved in their community.

Study Buddies

Study Buddies is a free weekly homework support group, held every Wednesday, for primary aged students.

Facilitated by a trained volunteer educator, the group is designed to support and encourage primary aged children with their schoolwork.

The group provides:

  • Support with completing math, reading and writing homework.
  • Healthy snacks for afternoon tea.
  • Help modelling a calm approach to study at home.

Sessions are held every Wednesday from 3:30 - 5:00pm during school term. Parents are encouraged to attend.

School Focused Youth Services

The School Focused Youth Service (SFYS) program supports vulnerable young people aged 10 - 18 years-old (Grades 5 - 12) who are at risk of withdrawing from school. We work with schools, families and carers to provide opportunities and skills for students to remain in school.

Young people can access these programs through their school.
