THRIVE is available to all families with a migrant background.
This program includes activities for parents as well as children. Events are regularly organised throughout the year.
As well as providing events for families, the THRIVE program includes activities for school-aged children, as well as a tutoring program for students in high school, college, TAFE and university.
Activities for primary school aged children
The program includes a ‘homework group’ once per week, which enables structured play and learning activities for primary-school aged children and English conversation practice for parents. School holiday activities and events for special days are organised and thoroughly enjoyed by families.
The weekly activities are held at the Haig Community Space in Mowbray and other activities are held around the Launceston region.
Tutor program for students
A Tutor Program operates during second, third and fourth school terms and provides one on one or small group tuition. The Tutor Program can be accessed by secondary, college, TAFE and university students from a migrant background. Volunteer tutors offer assistance with homework and school assignments across all disciplines. The Tutor Program can also be utilised for specialist tuition such as tertiary level Maths or English proficiency. The tutoring sessions are conducted twice weekly after school hours at the MRC’s offices at 95-99 Cameron Street.
THRIVE is a program funded by the Department of Social Services.
