Working with Teach for Australia associates

We are proud to work with Teach for Australia – an organisation dedicated to closing the education gap for disadvantaged kids (did you know that the least advantaged kids in Australian schools lag two and a half years behind the most privileged?). Our main role with TFA is “train the trainer” – training teachers to coach debating teams and use debating in their classrooms. Sometimes we are also able to help out at an individual school – like Fairhills High School in Knoxfield, Melbourne. Recently one of our most experienced FD trainers, Lynne Featonby, and a TFA associate teamed up and coached a Fairhills junior team to its first victory! Well done to all concerned, especially the members of the team.
