Noble Park Education Program
The Noble Park Education Program commence in 2016 and has a focus on reading and homework.
It supports approximately 25 primary school-aged students with a dedicated team of 15 volunteers. The program runs each Tuesday from 3.30pm-4.45pm during the Victorian School terms.
The program assists students with literacy and numeracy, as well as general social, emotional and academic support. This holistic approach helps to improve overall educational outcomes. Our paid coordinator and trained volunteers provide a friendly learning environment.
The education program team aims to improve the learning skills and attitudes of students, increase confidence when interacting with adult volunteers and peers, encourage collaboration, promote social inclusion, develop a growth mindset and showcase best learning practices.
