Free Maths Tutoring in Term 3

G’day parents,

This Sunday at 3:30pm we will be hosting free maths tutoring for high school students. This is something we’ve done for a while now and is a fantastic opportunity waiting to be taken advantage of.

Sometimes I wonder why this hasn’t been more popular than it is. Remember, it’s free! Normally this would cost about $60 an hour!

Here’s some details:

  • At St. John’s in Meeting Room 2 (to the left of the toilets).
  • Bring your school work with you (especially maths stuff).
  • It’s free!
  • All year levels of high school.
  • Students from all schools welcome.
  • This is not limited to church people; invite friends who would benefit from the tutoring.
  • There will be pre-Sunday@6 dinner from 5pm so do stick around for a feed 🙂

This is a great connection with our local community and will be held three times this term:

  • 13/8
  • 27/8
  • 10/9

If there is good interest this term (like term 4 last year) we’ll keep doing it fortnightly throughout the year. I sat in a few sessions last year and was very impressed with Sunny’s (the tutor) teaching style and manner.

Plus it’s free! Normally this would cost about $60 an hour, you get him for 90 minutes completely free of charge.

Tutoring, Food and…

G’day parents,

There is lots happening this Sunday (Aug 30).

Suni is a maths teacher who works at Diamond Valley College and is seeking to give back to the community by running some free tutoring on maths related school work. We’re hosting these sessions every second Sunday before our 5pm meals. Come along, bring your school work with you and any friends who’d like to take advantage of this generous offer. Click here for a post with more details.

After tutoring there is our fortnightly 5pm dinner which leads into the third in our ‘Love is…’ series of services; this time we’re talking about relationships where sex is a thing (either because people are actually having sex or just thinking about it). You might have noticed this is a big issue for teenagers!? Our culture presents us with a whole bunch of rubbish about sex so we’ll sift through all that muck and present people with what God really wants for us.

Warning: this final paragraph is highly opinionated.

I hope you read this as a loving comment from someone who cares about your kids rather than a criticism :-). If you think your high school kids are too young to be hearing about sex, you’re wrong. Even in the unlikely case that they’re not getting exposed to sexualised conversations and online content already, the first word on this stuff is way better coming from you than from some random source at school or online. So I would not just encourage you to bring your kids to this service, I’d also encourage you to stay yourself so you can talk about it afterwards. Opinion over :-).

Free Tutoring before Sunday@6

G’day parents,

One of the maths teachers from Diamond Valley College recently approached me hoping to “give back to the community” through offering some free tutoring. His name is Suni and we’ve organised for him to come in before dinner/church on a Sunday and tutor students in maths related school work.

This is a brand new thing so we’re not exactly sure how it will work, it will depend a lot on who attends. But we’re prepared to give it a go. Here’s some details, we’ll ask for feedback and hopefully tweak it as we go:

  • 3-5pm every second Sunday (starting 30th August).
  • At St. John’s in meeting room 2 (we’ll put signs up).
  • Bring your school work with you (especially maths stuff).
  • It’s free!
  • All year levels of high school.
  • Students from all schools welcome.
  • This is not limited to church people; invite friends who would benefit from the tutoring.
  • There will be pre-Sunday@6 dinner from 5pm so do stick around for a feed 🙂

Request: If this is something your kids are keen on, could you please email me and let me know they’ll be coming to our first session on Aug 30?
