Thanks to the generosity of writer Demet Divavoren, our students have participated in writing workshops where they have had the opportunity to engage with an experienced author and learn some skills needed to write biographies and ficiton.
Demet also began an initiative that has seen The Space be the grateful recipient of a range of books from Australian authors.
A big thank you for everyone's amazing generosity and for giving our students the encouragement and opportunity to engage with reading.
Visual Artist and Storyteller Visits
Our students watched enthralled as artist and storyteller Lynton Allan, created artworks before their eyes. As he painted Lynton wove in stories drawn from his own experiences. Students then got to try their hand at pastel drawing.
Our regular visits from Lynton always have a profound experience on our students.
Police Visit The Space
Police Youth resource officers Jo & Di will be visiting our students to answer questions and provide advice about a whole range of issues. As well as a general discussion about choices and consequences, students will have an opportunity to ask any questions they have. e.g. What do you need to do to become a police officer? What are my rights? What does it mean if I get in trouble with the police?
The discussions are always varied and very engaging.
Welcome to the Brunswick Learning Space
The Space provides a diverse and engaging program for students who are experiencing difficulties in their home school and are struggling to engage.
We are a quality program initiated by the DET to support students attending state secondary schools within the North Western Region.
Eligible students have the opportunity to participate in a one term program that will challenge patterns of behaviour, build self confidence and develop self awareness.
Our program is engaging… students want to attend the Space
Our program is supportive…students gain the benefit of small student/staff ratios
Our program is challenging…we encourage students to make changes and be accountable for their choices.
Our program makes a difference.
