Colet Mentoring

27 Lower Eighth students have been trained as new Colet Mentors. Our homework support resumed last Wednesday 22 September and our volunteers have already done over 25 support sessions with our partnership schools’ students. Each Colet volunteer spends 45 minutes a week offering 1:1 homework support for fellow students who need extra help with their homework.

We also continue to offer maths help to students in Juba, South Sudan, during their after-school maths club and our ‘Mentor of the Week’ is Ollie Woodford (Lower Eighth) who stepped in at very short notice to help with this class.  

Some quotes from our mentors:

“It feels rewarding to help students struggling”.

“It’s good to help students who are stuck rather than having them figure things out on their own and possibly staying stuck.”
