Monaro Family Support Service’s Koori After School Homework Program (KASH) was established in 2006 in response to a suggestion by local Koori families. The program has been an on-going partnership between Monaro Family Support Service and the Cooma Public School and is funded by NSW Department of Family & Community Services.
The program, which provides additional tutorial support , is conducted each Tuesday after school in school term and provides students with homework, literacy, numeracy skills, cultural information, craft, singing, dancing and exercise.
A healthy afternoon tea is provided and at least once a year in school holidays an excursion is offered.
