Seville Road State School

 

ABOUT

 

Seville Road State School opened in 1959 and is a small school with a big heart. Many cultures are represented in the school community with a large proportion of students from a non-English speaking background and many families who are refugees from their country of origin. The harmonious way in which students learn, work and play serves as a model to all humanity.

 

Volunteers from Holland Park Church of Christ assist teachers in the classroom by working one-on-one with students to support their English language skills, relationship building and general educational support.

 

WHAT WE DO

 

• Provide a healthy breakfast for students on a weekly basis during term time and    interact with students to encourage them and build relationships.

• Help out in the classroom to assist with reading and other programs for

   the students.

• Provide a thank you breakfast for staff twice a year.
