Education Support Programs

Gumala aims to support our members in schools, promote and ensure an increase in school participation rates among children in the communities in which Gumala operates, and to assist young people with their transition from year 10 to year 12 and beyond. Through partnerships and stakeholder relationships Gumala aim to support programs which:

  • Promote student health and wellbeing, and building a sense of belonging, building resilience by strengthening coping skills, andbuild networks to access support for students
  • Foster positive attitudes among students toward their peers, teachers and parents
  • Monitor the academic progress of students in conjunction with schools and parents

The education manager aims to:

  • Support parents and children with their education in any way possible
  • Regularly meet with teachers and parents concerning behavioural and pastoral care issues
  • Work with government agencies, community groups and the private sector to establish cross-sectoral partnerships and alliances to ensure greater school attendance and learning outcomes
