Year 13s wanted for PALs (Peer Assisted Learning Tutors)

We are looking for volunteers from Year 13 students to join our Peer Assisted Learning Programme. If you are keen to get training and experience as a peer tutor, this is a great opportunity to both learn and contribute. It will also look great on your CV and Tertiary applications.
What it involves is 3 training sessions in term 1.Then in terms 2 and 3 you will work one hour per week (during a study period/lunchtime/after school) to support a junior student. Most of you will be required to focus on year 9 Maths, but there will be opportunities to provide support in other subjects.
If this sounds like you, or you want to know more, call in and talk to us (Learning Centre teachers), and sign up. Training will begin in week 6. We are located on Level 1 Maungakiekie. Ask for Simon or Helen. or email thorpeh@wsc.school.nz
