GRASSROOTS TUITION CENTRE IN EASTON AIMS TO REDUCE INEQUALITY IN EDUCATION
A new organisation offering one-to-one tuition has been set up in Easton, to support children marginalised by “an education system that recreates social and racial hierarchies”. The Atamai Tutor Centre is currently providing tuition to young people at Baggator, in a collaboration between educators, activists and youth workers.
The group recognises that the pandemic has exacerbated existing problems and aims to build confidence in children who have spent an extended period away from school because of the Covid-19 lockdown, without the resources to support home learning.
SUPER SUPPER CLUB EXPANDS TO FEED LOCAL CHILDREN
The Super Supper Club, held at Easton-based organisation Baggator, has expanded to cook food for local children on a Thursday evening. The project, Bagga-bites, was born at the start of lockdown due to concerns in the community around childhood nutrition and mental health. Now, organisers are doing what they can to keep it going while still following lockdown rules.
