Offering the child/children more opportunities 

"It's a good school that can be bothered, tries to get as many opportunities for the kids as it can."

Additional socio-emotional support

"The mentor will help them in life and with difficulties that mum and dad may not be aware of. They have someone else to talk to."

Broadening the child/children's experiences

  • "Good program. We are lucky to be involved. The children get a different perspective to the farming community which broadens their world."

  • "It's good, glad the school is doing it. Country kids don't meet Uni students and see that they are normal people." 

Positive influence on the child/children

"We have had visits in Perth, talk on the phone and text. The mentor even texts me! Love it. It's great and it needs to keep going - positive influence on the kids lives."
