Summary of activities

Since our beginnings in 1923, our support has assisted over 7,500 students to comprehensively engage in and advance their education. Our support is directed to Australian students in necessitous circumstances. It enables those students to overcome barriers to their education, access the same learning opportunities as peers and the chance to reach their potential. We utilise robust assessment processes to ensure support is directed to those students whose needs are most acute and we evaluate the benefit of our support through our unique “Measures of Effectiveness”. Our support assists students in six areas. On a personal level, they develop resilience, self-esteem and perseverance. The environment surrounding them is more supportive and engaged with their education. Socially, they develop increased and diverse networks with school, family and the broader community. Academic engagement is enhanced as new learning habits & improved attitudes are encouraged. Educational progression is improved as focus is applied to agreed learning goals and student results reflect further academic attainment. Our support is based on the needs of each student seeking assistance. Our support may include (but is not limited to): schools fees, books and stationery, school uniforms, school camps and excursions, home computer and internet access, remedial after-school tuition in areas of critical underperformance, treatment for medical conditions impacting on their studies, support to enable participation in vocational training, weekend sports or involvement in the arts. For tertiary students, our support may also include help with accommodation, basic living costs, work placement & reward for consistently strong results. We regularly interact with students, their families & their teachers to ensure our program is effective. We obtain School Reports and Academic Transcripts and we evaluate the extent to which agreed Learning Goals, are attained. All are then used to determine a “Measure of Effectiveness” for each student and if necessary, then adjust the tailored support plan to help enhance the educational progression that is achieved.
