Providing a Bright Future for Seriously ill Children

Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Northern NSW has celebrated World Teachers’ Day by recognising the exceptional tutors who help make the journey back to school easier for seriously ill children via the Ronald McDonald Learning Program.

The team of qualified and registered teachers, along with speech and occupational therapists, assist school-aged children with serious illnesses and injuries to catch-up on missed education following treatment and recovery.

One of those committed tutors is Kasey, who was introduced to the Learning Program by another teacher at her school.

"The Ronald McDonald Learning Program is an avenue of education that has inspired me to be a better teacher and think outside the box for every student,” said Kasey.

"The children who have crossed my path have taught me patience and persistence, qualities that are well beyond their years, in many cases. They teach me to value hope and to never give up, regardless of the battle to be faced.”

The Ronald McDonald Learning Program provides a suite of educational support services, including therapy sessions and one-on-one tutorials with experienced teachers and is tailored to students’ individual needs. It aims to build each child’s confidence and self-esteem, helping them catch up on their missed education and reach their fullest potential.

The Ronald McDonald Learning Program is made possible by the generosity of the local community and funding from the Greater Charitable Foundation.

If you’d like to join the Ronald McDonald Learning Program as a tutor, visit www.rmhc.org.au/ronald-mcdonald-learning-program and find out how you can provide a bright future for seriously ill children.
