7 Y12 students assist teachers in their care of the Ashmount pupils on Thursday afternoons, helping out with a range of activities.
To foster community relations, and improve the quality of specialised education for the primary pupils. Furthermore, to allow Y12 students to enhance their interpersonal and teamwork skills, and emphasis the benefits of volunteer work.
The Partnership has been running for over 15 years.
Each volunteer student is placed with a class, under the supervision and direction of a teacher from the school.
Pupils at Ashmount are from different primary school classes.
This Partnership project runs every year, with a new set of Y12 students.
