Jill and Neil Wilson have been volunteering with us since before we even knew we needed volunteers. They’ve been an immense support since day one, and it's so long overdue for us to say an official thank you, so… thank you so much!
Early in Term 4 2017 we went into Shalvey High School to run a two hour workshop, followed by a two hour volunteer training session. Year 9 students had the opportunity to tutor in two day-long workshop projects at neighbouring Willmot Public School.
Blanche constantly reflects on the best possible practice with her students, she consistently arrives early and stays late, and attends as many volunteer training sessions as she can to improve her tutoring.
SEPTEMBER 2016 Rita's a wonderful tutor, always making friends with her students quickly and encouraging them to discover their best work. Besides tutoring, she's been involved in numerous fundraising events, and we love having her as part of the team.
JUNE 2016 Not only has Justine volunteered close to 200 hours at the Sydney Story Factory since starting with us at the beginning of 2013, she is also the kind of volunteer to throw herself into the most challenging situations.
APRIL 2016 Alison has been tutoring in workshops since the end of 2014 - over 65 of them in fact. We're always very excited when Alison signs up to tutor because she brings the most incredible patience, empathy and curiosity to the role.
