Knowledge Equals Opportunities
Volunteering Matters is an organisation bringing a 6 week programme to Ravenswood in the new year (starting on Tuesday 15th January between 1400 -1500 hrs) aiming to reach out to our EAL community.
Once a week different topics will be discussed such as learning about school, health, employment, English language, benefits and much more.
Younger children are welcome to come along too! Hot refreshments and biscuits will be provided...we look forward to seeing you!

Thank you to those that attended our latest coffee afternoon that was held in the school library on Tuesday 20th November. It is always a great opportunity for parents/carers of children with English as an additional language to get together and meet with other parents.
As our coffee afternoons are very informal please feel free to ask questions, share your experiences as EAL parents and use these events to find out what is happening in school.
