Scitech visit helps build young minds

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

THE kids at Bel­mont Home­work Cen­tre got a fly­ing visit from Sci­etch re­cently who put on a spe­cial work­shop about the forces of flight. The Home­work Cen­tre has as­sisted hun­dreds of chil­dren with their ed­u­ca­tion and de­vel­op­ment since it started 12 years ago. St Vin­cent de Paul So­ci­ety spokes­woman Joanne Hill said the pro­gram em­pow­ered stu­dents who were strug­gling with their school work by pro­vid­ing ad­di­tional sup­port to help make ed­u­ca­tion an en­joy­able part of their lives. “The home­work cen­tre pro­vides a nu­tri­tious af­ter­noon tea, per­son­alised tu­ition, and the op­por­tu­nity to join in with fun ac­tiv­i­ties aimed at de­vel­op­ing the chil­dren’s life skills,” she said. “It’s not just about im­prov­ing the chil­dren’s school­work, but also fos­ter­ing their in­ter­per­sonal skills.”
