$250,000 stu­dent boost

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

Stu­dents at Aus­tralind Se­nior High School will re­ceive ad­di­tional sup­port for a men­tor­ship pro­gram thanks to a $250,000 part­ner­ship be­tween EdCon­nect Aus­tralia and the Al­coa Foun­da­tion.

Al­coa, which first part­nered with EdCon­nect’s Con­nect­ing Gen­er­a­tions for School Suc­cess pro­gram in 2016, has agreed to con­tinue sup­port­ing the pro­grams in the Peel and Har­vey shires.

The pro­grams aim to match vol­un­teers with up to 800 stu­dents at risk of not achiev­ing their ed­u­ca­tional po­ten­tial in at least 15 schools each year.

Al­coa of Aus­tralia chair­man and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Michael Parker said the com­pany was proud to sup­port a pro­gram that had strong cross-gen­er­a­tional ben­e­fits.
