Sidekicks Junior (Footscray)
Sidekicks Junior is a weekly program that focuses on the learning and development.
During the program we maintain a strong focus on building English language skills such as spoken English, spelling and vocabulary, reading, writing and comprehension. We are also able to assist with homework and conduct various activities that have a strong focus on mentoring, social engagement and confidence building.
We also strive to form strong relationships and engagement with all parents involved in our programs to ensure positive educational outcomes for the children.
Family Learning Club
As part of the Refugee Education Support Program (RESP) in conjunction with the Centre for Multicultural Youth, Foundation House and the Department of Education, we will be offering the Family Learning Club to Truganina South Primary School. The program is aimed at fostering community connections, social development and educational support for children in Prep to Year 2 and their families. This grassroots partnership between the school and RMCC is a weekly program run outside of school which provides a consistent and committed support structure to recently arrived families at Truganina South Primary School.
Our program is focused on providing unique opportunities to support social and educational development. This includes dance and performance workshops, science project-based learning, arts and crafts activities, gardening and environmental workshops. These interactive, educational and energetic workshops allow children develop life skills such as critical thinking, intra- and inter-personal skills, as well as enhance educational outcomes for all children.
Educational Material Aid
Material Aid is available to participants in our programs. These items include such things as school bags, school books, stationary and Myki top up for travel to and from school. Our organisation sees it vital that children have access to items that are crucial to their education and development.
