Pilbara News - - News - ■ Louise Alling­ham

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.
