Starting in late 2005 with just a handful of tutors and students, the Club now has over sixty tutors and helps dozens of students each week of the school term. The Club has a management committee to co-ordinate tutors, apply for grants and organise events and activities for students and tutors.
We meet from 6pm to 7:30pm each Wednesday during the school term. Tutors work one-on-one with students at the Collingwood Neighbourhood House, found at 253 Hoddle St, Collingwood (map). We work with children on literacy (reading and writing), maths and homework assignments, including using the available computers.
We also organise excursions and day-trips for children during the holidays, tutor social functions, fund-raising activities and a break-up party for the end of the school year.
The Collingwood Homework Club operates with the ongoing support of the Belgium Avenue Neighbourhood House (BANH), the City of Yarra and the Victorian Government. More supporters can be found under our Resources.
