One of the commitments that we make as a congregation to those starting Year 11, is that we will support them through their schooling in ways that are most helpful and practical. This includes tutoring or study assistance. We are a very fortunate and gifted congregation here, and can cover just about everything that people are studying. In the past this has proved extremely helpful for a number of our young students. So … please help!!
Are you willing to be available if needed to help our young people through times in Year 11 & 12? It is a great way to establish relationships and meet some really interesting young people!! Can you help with any subject if called on? Maths? Physics? Legal Studies? English? Drama? Languages? Anything?? Continue reading
