Djarragun’s boarding students take part in regular meetings of the Homework Club, which brings students together to support their academic growth and performance.

Boarding staff are there to help and teachers also attend from time to time in order to support students with their work.

During the first half of the year, those attending the Club have made some great gains, particularly in numeracy and mathematics.

Mathematics teacher, Mr Kerr, joined the club in June to assist students with mathematical fractions. He noted that two students “caught up completely on [their] classwork, very impressive … It was great to see the participation.”

One student was excited attheir breakthrough: “Sir, I am getting these fractions better now, it’s easy.”
