Tutors assist students with homework and other tasks while the parents attend information sessions about the Australian school system and the role of education, importance of nutrition, Domestic and Family Violence and other social issues. Held once a week in Hampden Park Public School, Punchbowl Public School, Bankstown Senior College and Ashfield Public School.
