Learning Clubs are getting great results
When we started after-school Learning Clubs in partnership with the Groote Eylandt local schools and the Graham Polly Farmer Foundation, our idea was to provide tutors who could give extra help to the children of our Indigenous team members.
But like so many great ideas, this one has grown, and we now have Learning Clubs in Angurugu, Umbakumba and Alyangula, with 52 participating students. In addition to our workers’ kids who attend, principals at each of the three schools have nominated several high achievers and other high potential students to participate.
From little things, big things grow!
