15 York House students have been heading to Queen Alexandra School every Tuesday after-school since September. In their role as KidSafe volunteers, they assist students with their homework, help them with their projects and are there to just listen and talk. Our students have done a superb job… showing patience, kindess, support and friendship.
According to Mr. Lee, a Grade 7 teacher at Queen Alexandra School, the YHS tutors “have made an amazing difference. The kids understand Math better and are trying harder than they did before.”
We have a special group of students who have made this weekly commitment, some like Alison, Azzra and Kimberly, who are in their second year. There is time for work and time for having fun… here the students are enjoying a year-end Christmas party in which our students provided homemade treats and brought a gift for their buddy that they chose themselves.
We all look forward to working with our Queen Alexandra friends in 2012!
