DayMer

Turkish and Kurdish Community Centre

Education Services

 

The centre also specializes in providing educational services to the Turkish and Kurdish Community in the form of Families First Project (Day-Mer Repairing Relationship – Family Brokerage Service) that offers services to targeted pupils and families based in Hackney schools and Day-Mer.  Day-Mer’s Parental Involvement Worker’s and Schools Link Officer’s main objective is to improve children and young people’s educational experience through improved communication between children/young people and their parents and schools. This work is funded by Big Lottery Fund and has been running for a year and is currently provided to three Hackney primary schools. 

 

Moreover, the education service is closely linked in with the centre’s advice, women’s, youth and cultural services, contributing to the effort of providing a holistic service with a client group with multiple needs ranging from immigration, to employment, to housing and welfare issues. Also, over a decade, supplementary schools sessions have began to be provided in the centre, adding to the diversity of educational services. Day-Mer’s education service Families First is also closely linked in with the centre’s cultural activities, folk dance, drama and art.

 

The Day-Mer Families First project aims to improve the performance of Turkish, Kurdish and Turkish Cypriot primary school children. It provides a gateway to training for refugee parents who have lack of knowledge about the UK education system, how to help their children lesson, the understanding of their children whose in between clash of different culture and language. It also aims to enable the parents of Turkish, Kurdish and Turkish Cypriots children to engage with the community centre and access services that will improve their quality of life and increase opportunities for them.

Supplementary School

Day-Mer's success in educational work also includes its Supplementary School work. Day-Mer have started Supplementary School in weekdays since April 2004 in Literacy, Numeracy and Turkish lessons for primary pupils and for secondary pupils for Maths, Science and English lessons in Day-Mer as well as in primary and secondary school in Hackney.
 
Our aim is to help primary and secondary school pupils especially their Literacy, Numeracy, Maths, Science, and English lessons as well as their SATs and GCSE exams. Day-Mer has experience teachers, co-educators, and teacher assistant for its supplementary school classes and teaches in line of curriculum. Because we already have connection with primary and secondary schools, we can get student for our class through our co-educators as well as teacher members of Day-Mer in Hackney Schools. Also through our advice service, many parents especially mothers hear about our supplementary school and bring their children. The success of supplementary school can be heard by word of mouth which also attracts many parents to our Supplementary School.
 
Our supplementary schools for this academic year have come to an end and we are due to restart sessions from September 2013.
