Hampton Park Secondary College Homework Support Program - WINNER
Approximately 20% of the students at Hampton Park Secondary College speak English as an Additional Language and many students face barriers to their education including limited English, financial difficulty and a disrupted education. The after school EAL Homework Support Program has had a tremendous impact on educational outcomes for refugee and asylum seeker background students at Hampton Park Secondary College. Participation in the homework club has led to greater student engagement in the classroom, improved self-confidence and a heightened sense of belonging. The program offers a vibrant, supportive space where students are encouraged to set short and long term goals for themselves and work towards achieving these goals.
