Learning club focus of research
A Lotterywest grant received by the Graham (Polly) Farmer Foundation will go towards research into the Tom Price after-school learning club.
The study will be conducted by the Australian Council for Education Research and will provide valuable information in order to construct a suitable model for the existing and proposed learning clubs around regional Australia.
The first three years of activity in the Tom Price afterschool learning club will be studied and evaluated through site visits, interviews and data collection and analysis.
The learning club is a program for Aboriginal children to assist with numeracy, literacy, and educational and personal development.
