Creeds Living and Learning Centre is a neighbourhood house in the culturally diverse growth areas of Epping North and Wollert. We provide opportunities for life-long learning, skills development, information sharing, social and recreational activities, community connection and development.
Creeds Farm Homework Club has operated since 2015, providing after school educational assistance to primary and secondary students. Our Homework Club runs one afternoon per week during school terms and is staffed by a Project Worker with the assistance of volunteer tutors. Between five and fifteen children usually attend. We normally have from one to five volunteer tutors who are managed and directed by the Homework Club Project Worker. Volunteers come from a wide range of backgrounds and have often included trainee teachers on placement, parents and other community members.
The Creeds Farm Homework Club aims to develop young people’s confidence, helping them participate, both socially and academically in school in meaningful ways. The engagement of parents/families is a key element of our program. The Homework Club is particularly aimed at refugee and recent arrival students and students who are economically or socially disadvantaged.
Creeds Farm Homework Club has been in recess since March 2020 due to the pandemic. We will be starting again in March 2021 in a council venue as our building undertakes extensive repairs.
