Distance 'learning hub' opened at community centre

Sydney Distance Education High School has opened its first "learning hub" at the Peninsula Community Centre, with the initiative launched at an open day held on Tuesday, July 22.

The hub will offer a flexible distance education program combining the distance education with face to face support every Tuesday at the Centre.

Mr Andrew Tuck said: "We are very excited to offer this unique blended distance education program on the Coast which will provide pathways for students from all walks of life."

"This initiative will provide opportunities for Sydney Distance Education High School students to engage with their teachers, their peers and their learning on a regular basis, without having to travel long distances," said Mr Andrew Tuck, who organisation Coast Community Connections will host the program.

"The hub at the Peninsula Community Centre aims to complement the Sydney Distance Education High School program with unique personalised support, yet also offer students the opportunity to meet specific teachers and access other beneficial services provided by Coast Community Connections," said Mr Tuck.

The Sydney Distance Education High School Central Coast learning hub will operate at the Centre between 9am and 3:30pm each Tuesday of the school term.

A morning session will run from 9am to 12pm and an afternoon session from 12:30pm to 3pm.

"We are the only outreach school venue for Sydney Distance Education High School," said Mr Tuck.

The school offers courses for full-time and part-time students, including students with medical conditions and those with significant support needs.

In addition, the Sydney Distance Education High School distance education program accommodates students studying single courses which they are not able to access through their home school.
