New Zealand Education Gazette: Making human connections

New Zealand Education Gazette coverFor the past two years, staff from a Wellington law firm have joined Porirua students after school as part of the Homework Help project. Education Gazette finds out how it began and what it means to the participants.

A project that brings together primary students from decile one schools with corporate lawyers began with a casual request.

The Homework Help Club started with Holy Family School in Cannons Creek, Porirua, and a group of lawyers from Wellington firm Minter Ellison Rudd Watts.

Lawyer Stacey Shortall developed the initiative as a way to forge meaningful connections between staff at the firm and children at the school.
