Homework centres- changing children’s lives | Phoenix Sun

Update
Phoenix Durban

The welfare’s homework centres were created as an after-school programme, providing a safe and suitable environment for children to complete their homework, improve academic development and empower themselves.

In 2015, the Phoenix Child Welfare embarked on a preventive programme, which was aimed at improving the well-being and safety and children.
Social work interventions revealed that many children come from destitute homes, single parent homes, homes where children are exposed to domestic violence and over-crowed homes with minimal space for children to complete homework or homes that lack basic resources such as food, electricity and water.
The welfare’s homework centres were created as an after-school programme, providing a safe and suitable environment for children to complete their homework, improve academic development and empower themselves.
This initiative was sparked by the circumstances that surrounded the tragic death of Clayhaven Primary School pupil, Shahiel Sewpujan.

In 2015, Clayhaven Primary School officially opened their homework centre called the Mustard Seed. The centre currently has 30 pupils.
Lenham Primary School proudly opened their homework centre in 2016. It is called Sunshine Corner and caters for 10 pupils. However, due to safety measures, the homework centre unfortunately closed in 2019.
In 2017, Highstone Primary School opened its centre and accommodates 20 pupils.
The goal is to establish this after-school programme in all primary schools, thus ensuring that children are always in a safe environment. For more information, contact the Phoenix Child Welfare on 031 500-3671.
