Surprises For Gogos At Daveyton Skills School

JUNE 2017

Imagine a school that turns out skilled people, ready to earn their own living and provide services to their community?

This is what Daveyton Skills School is endeavouring to do, with the total enthusiasm of pupils and staff.

Young people leaving this school will be almost ready to make their way in society trained in various skills, such as

Hairdressing (male and female),

Woodworking (you should see their picnic tables),



Contrary to some funny ideas people have, here is an account of a typical action filled morning with the Reading Gogos at Daveyton Intermediate school.

As 9am approaches a small army of the more mature type of lady descends on the school’s media centre, intent on exchanging gossip whilst assembling stuff to use in their awaiting classes.

A highly diverse group of people, these volunteers are encouraged to do their own thing in interacting with children in grades 1-3, as just about any activity is extremely useful encouragement in the lives of these youngsters.
