Blake Murray and program coordinator Heidi ProwseTHE Smith Family has called for volunteer tutors to step forward after the success of its after-school hours learning club for Taree primary school students.
The tutors will work with a second Learning Club for year seven students.
Running on Tuesdays between 4pm and 5pm at the Taree City Library, the two clubs offer more than 20 children who are supported through The Smith Family’s Learning for Life sponsorship program.
The clubs help to consolidate children’s classroom learning, whilst boosting their confidence and self-esteem, helping with homework, general literacy and numeracy.
The new Learning Club for year seven students will assist those who have moved on from the primary Learning Club, as well as new students looking for support to help them stay on top of the school curriculum.
Members of the public suited to volunteering in the role of Learning Club tutor are patient, enthusiastic and able to relate to children, in addition to possessing good oral and written communication skills.
Anyone interested in volunteering is encouraged to contact the Taree Smith Family office on 6551 0229.
