Children will be supported through classes called Techno Kids where they learn how to research on the internet, use online learning programs and are given learning worksheets. These sessions are aimed to improve children’s literacy and numeracy skills.
The sessions are provided in a safe environment and include afternoon tea and transport to their homes. For further information and to obtain a registration form and transport authorisation form please contact Reception at LAA.
