Survivor Challenge – 10th April 2016

On the 10th of April, the SKLPC WA Tutoring group, including tutors, students and their families, took part in our very first tribal “Survivor Challenge”. It was a fun filled afternoon with students and families gathering on the playing field at Woodvale Secondary School shortly after a regular Sunday tutoring session. However, with a forecast of cloud and rain, we weren’t feeling too optimistic.

Soon after teams were formed by the all powerful Tribal Chief and each team came up with a punchy tribe name and enthusiastic cheer for everyone to see, the sun came out from behind the looming clouds and we knew we were in for a fantastic day. There was only one thing that could’ve changed our luck: team spirit.

No doubt the competitiveness and cheering erupted as teams took part in 3 big challenges: the bamboo ball relay, where team members were required to transport a small ball in a tube of bamboo around an obstacle course without dropping it, flip the island, where teams had to flip a large piece of cloth without even a single member stepping off it, the frozen tee challenge where teams were asked to defrost a frozen tee-shirt and put it on one of their players.
Last but not least was the general knowledge knockout. As the Science, Maths and English questions became increasingly difficult, teams began to drop one by one, leaving the winning team standing. Congratulations to the champions: the orange dragons and the Purple Penguins and Blue Sharks coming in close second and third.

After all that excitement and energy, we looked forward to a lovely lunch prepared earlier by the students’ parents, with some of the tasty bites on the menu including chutney and cheese toasted sandwiches, potato salad and wraps. Safe to say it was exactly what the tribes needed to refuel.   
The event was a huge success and with over 60 participants, it is by far the biggest tutoring event the SKLPC WA Tutoring group have organized. Thanks to all the students, parents and tutors for bringing all that positive energy and team spirit, and to every single person who was involved in putting together this brilliant afternoon.

We would also like to thank everyone that has been a part of our first fruitful term of 2016 at SKLPC WA tutoring.  Stay tuned for more updates on our progress throughout the year including upcoming events!    

Parent Visitation Day - 14 February 2016

The SKPLC WA Tutoring group would like to thank all the parents, previous and prospective students who attended the 2016 Tutoring Launch last Sunday.  We kicked off our first tutoring session of the year with a Parent Visitation Day. Whilst students got to know their fellow peers and tutors for the term, parents were introduced to our tutoring services, before being invited to join the last 15 minutes of various Math’s, English and Science classes. 

The day was buzzing with excited past and new tutors, students and parents, as some were tested on their algebra skills and others challenged in a debate class! This launch was a success with over 20 registrations and an excellent parent turnout. We hope this day was a good opportunity for parents to raise any queries about the tutoring services we provide as well as a chance to get to know some of our tutors and their educational skills and interests.

For those of you who were unable to attend the launch, don't panic! You are more than welcome to join us any Sunday and there will always be someone at the school to answers all your questions. For immediate enquiries contact us via email at sklpc-wa-tutoring@googlegroups.com. We look forward to seeing all our enrolled students and their parents regularly in the upcoming weeks!
