This report is the product of a group research project carried out in partnership with Victoria University students, secondary school refugee students and the facilitators of the Homework Club. Set up in 2004 through the support of the Somali Council, the Homework Club aims to support refugee high school students to improve their educational performance and to encourage them into higher education. Initially, a successful project, the Homework Club has experienced a decline in the number of students who attend regularly and research is needed to determine the causes for this and to develop strategies to increase student participation.
