Education

All children and young people have the right to quality education in order to give them the best start in life and at school. Though, how students feel about themselves and their well-being changes over time due to various circumstances and differences which can affect how students engage and succeed in school.

Links to Learning

Links to Learning supports students (Year 6 – Year 11),  from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, who are at risk of disengaging from learning and/or at risk of leaving school early. The project assists young people to successfully transition and stay in school through engaging groups and one-on-one work.

Our educational groups are small, intimate groups and run for 10 or more weeks in length. Every group is tailored to the needs of each group and is created in consultation with students, which includes creative learning activities such as:

  • Sports & Fitness
  • Arts & Music
  • Building Self-Esteem & respect
  • Mental Health & Wellbeing
  • Handling emotions and challenges
  • Handling racism and bullying

Our groups are currently running in 13 partner schools across St George & Sutherland, including primary and high schools.  If you’re interested in running a Links to Learning group at your school, we’d love to hear from you.
