A new homework club will be helping young people to learn in West Bromwich, in the West Midlands, thanks to a town grant from Sandwell Council.
Latifiah Fultali Complex – an Islamic Secondary school – is now running a homework club for children of all cultures and backgrounds. The £4,800 grant from the West Bromwich Local Area Budget will cover the cost of IT equipment, stationery, exercise books and promotional materials.
Sandwell Council’s Deputy Leader Councillor Syeda Khatun said: “The aim of the homework club is to give young people access to space and the resources they need to progress in their studies.
“The club will also serve as a foundation where pupils will be able to build their confidence through social interactions with other children.”
The homework club starts at the school, in Lodge Road, on Monday April 15 and will run every Monday and Wednesday 4-5pm and also 11am to 12pm on Saturdays.
