The Homework and Learning Support Initiative- Woodleigh School, BSL, Micare – RUNNER UP

The Woodleigh School Homework and Learning Support Initiative brings together peer tutors, volunteers, and families from migrant and refugee backgrounds once per week. 35 high school students from Woodleigh School, along with other volunteers and community professionals, support the educational engagement and social inclusion of disadvantaged children and families from refugee backgrounds in Frankston. The program aims to support children from migrant and refugee backgrounds to remain engaged in education, connect families to services in the community and increase the cross-cultural knowledge and awareness of local people from non-migrant backgrounds.
