Kedron State High School is located on Brisbane’s north side and has a large population of students from refugee and migrant backgrounds. ACU Engagement partners with the school in supporting an afternoon homework club where these students can receive support for their homework tasks and assignments. Many of these students have been in Australia for less than five years.
Students from several schools at ACU, including occupational therapy, speech pathology, and social work, have completed community engagement hours at the homework club, helping the students with their high school studies. ACU Engagement supports the homework club during the school’s terms two and three.
