Manly Students Back On Top From Tutoring Program
Students in Manly are catching up on their education post pandemic with 18 dedicated tutors starting at local schools. The new tutors have started following the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government’s history-making $337 million COVID catch-up tuition program for NSW schools.
Member for Manly James Griffin said it’s great to see students benefiting from the tutoring program in the area.
“This is a great opportunity for students to catch up after the disruptions last year,” a spokesperson for Mr Griffin said.
“Schools are using the flexibility to deliver programs in a way that helps their students.”
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell confirmed today that 5417 tutors have been employed in NSW public schools, with almost 99 per cent of schools already offering tutoring support to their students.
“Helping NSW students bridge the gaps in their learning caused by COVID is part of our Government’s efforts to build a safer and stronger NSW,” Ms Mitchell said.
The additional support is tailored by schools using both the data from last year’s Check-in Assessments and the knowledge of classroom teachers.
“This means no matter where a school is in NSW or how many students they have, they can provide a tutoring program which works for their students,” Ms Mitchell said.
“The program has had a fantastic take-up by our country schools, and more than 3200 of the tutors delivering the program are in regional, rural and remote schools.”
