Education and Training
Education is a key priority of LFKK to bring confidence and pride to the lives of its members and break the cycle of marginalisation and disadvantage.We provide support for education and training in a number of ways, including:
- provision of shoes, uniforms, books for ‘Back to School’ in January for one hundred children
- placement in local schools and support for scholarships to private schools
- payment for school excursions
- assistance with placement and support for university students and teens at TAFE
- assistance with literacy and homework assessments
- support for those entering the workforce.
Jarjum College Redfern
LFKK is proud to have initiated the recently established Redfern Jarjum College. Opened with the support of LFKK members, City of Sydney Council, the NSW and federal governments, the Jesuit Community at St Aloysius’ College and the Archdiocese of Sydney, Jarjum offers targeted education and support to Aboriginal children not currently managing in mainstream primary schools. A number of students of Jarjum are also LFKK members and we will continue to support their educational development.
