"The Macarthur region of South West Sydney has one of the highest rates of obesity in NSW."
Homework Club currently operates from two schools, Sarah Redfern High School and Sarah Redfern Public School. The High School also caters for students from Campbellfield Public School, Minto Primary School and The Grange Primary School. Sadly, many children do not have suitable home environments in which to study. Many parents do not support their children to do homework. Through Homework Club we see the steady improvement of students' performance in the classroom. We have seen students move from the bottom of the class in terms of marks to the top as a direct result of attending Homework Club.
Students attend the Monday and Tuesday afternoons sessions where teachers and Daystar volunteers assist students with their homework.
