Interested in improving your English-speaking skills? The Galaxy Club at Strathpine West State School is inviting the community to come practise with them at their school. The best part? It’s all FREE.
The Galaxy Club, hosted by the school’s Chaplain and a group of volunteers, is open between 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and is keen on helping Strathpine improve their English while simultaneously learning more about the cultures of one another to foster a sense of community.
Admission is completely free, and childminding services are also offered. Those concerned about transport will have nothing to worry as the school is willing to transport participants to and from the venue.
One of the primary reasons the program came about was due to the fact that there were a grand total of 22 different languages spoken by students and their families at the Strathpine West State School. English was not the first language of many of these children and their parents, and this would get in the way of their education as lessons in school were taught in English.
Due to the sheer diversity of students and their cultural origins, the Galaxy Club aims to celebrate the backgrounds and cultures of the students from their school. However, the program is open to all members of the community whether their children study in Strathpine West State School or not.
