Moree Learning Centre
Empowering rural youth through community, culture and connection.
To reduce the educational disadvantage in rural Australia by providing a
Learning Centre tailored towards the personal and cultural needs of
students in remote northwest NSW communities.
We aim to establish Learning Centres in rural NSW communities to assist
students who are disadvantaged by the current school system. Our needs
assessment identified three primary reasons preventing these students from
succeeding in their studies:
Our Learning Centre, in collaboration with Ephraim House and Complete
Education Australia, disrupts the traditional model of curriculum delivery and
behavioural management, catering to the cultural needs of Australian youth to improve student engagement and learning. In particular, a teacher:student ratio around 1:4 and a highly individualised and flexible curriculum enables students to receive schooling tailored to their personal needs, improving attitudes to education as well as educational outcomes.
