Homework Club has big HEART

​​HEART homework.jpg

Our Lady’s College has been very lucky to be able to secure the services of some highly dedicated past students to work with current girls in a number of different areas. 

Our HEART Club for homework help runs three afternoons a week, and Kenisha Dsouza, Paige Mackie and Olivia Anderson will be in Ad Altiora Place to support students from 3 – 4 pm Monday through Wednesdays. Celine Aswad and Ruby Parker will be relief tutors, so there should always be someone available.

Jorja Horton, Jada Kynoch and Alice Hill are working with girls in the sporting arena, coaching, training and mentoring teams playing term one sport. They travel with the girls to games and are a great addition to the OLC support staff.

We have added Debating to our list of co-curricular activities and Olivia and Ruby will be meeting students to help them refine their research, structure and presentation skills. We are excited to include this activity under the supervision of Mr David Lyon.

Here are introductions in their own words.

Olivia Anderson
My name is Olivia Anderson and I am currently in my second year of a double degree in a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Government and International Relations at Griffith University. While at OLC, I loved debating, music and humanities subjects such as English, Legal Studies and Religion. I particularly love writing and editing essays.

I am also part of QUT’s auditioned A Capella ensemble. I currently work at Woolworths as a Front End and Fresh Service Team member. I enjoy music, singing and watching movies.

My name is Kenisha and I graduated Our Lady's College last year. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Design and Information Technology at the Queensland University of Technology. During my time at Our Lady's College I attended the after-school homework help program often, which helped me when I felt a little lost or unsure about my studies. I am coming back to high school to help other students in Mathematics, Science and Art.
