Q - Can I request to go to a specific school on the Rural Program?
A - Yes you may outline your school preferences by emailing email@example.com but please keep in mind that we cannot guarantee that your preferences will be fulfilled. This is because the allocation of volunteers to their respective schools is a lengthy process in which many factors need to be considered so as to best equip each school.
Q - Where will we be staying and sleeping?
A - You will either be staying and sleeping in one of the rooms at the school or a community hall close by to the school. During the day, all your belongings will be safe as the doors will be locked. Please note that you will most likely be sleeping in the same room as ALL the other volunteers, so if you have an issue with sleeping in the same room as the opposite sex, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so we can make relevant arrangements for you.
Q - What are the sizes of the groups?
A - RP groups range from four to 21 depending on many factors such as the school’s needs and the school’s distance from Perth.
Q - My availabilities for the Rural Program have changed since submitting my application, who should I contact about this?
A - Please email email@example.com detailing your availabilities and we will take note of your changes in availabilities.
Q - How will I get there?
A - To arrive at most schools, you will take a bus and/or train to the closest station and then a school bus will pick you up and take you to your accommodation. However, a few schools may require volunteers to fly there (costs covered).
Rural Program Costs FAQ's
Q - How much does the RP cost?
A - The RP comes to no cost at all if you are a full-time student with a concession Smartrider. Otherwise, you will have to pay the difference between the adult and student transport fare.
Q - When will I get my deposit back?
A - Trick question: You will NOT be required to make a deposit this semester! Instead, we will be taking your card details and any transactions can be automated. For example, if you are not a full time student, you will be required to pay part of the transport fee and thus, we will be taking some expenses from your account.
Q - I can’t attend one of the compulsory Tutor Training Days, will my deposit be affected?
A - Volunteers will not be required to make a deposit this semester! Instead, we will be taking your card details and any transactions can be automated. Therefore, if you cannot attend one of the compulsory Tutor Training Days due to an unjustifiable reason such as work commitments, we will be taking some expenses from your account. However, if you are unable to attend due to a justifiable reason such as an illness or exam, no expenses will be taken from your account. Do keep in mind that each situation is a case-by-case basis, and also depends on how much of the training day you can attend so please email firstname.lastname@example.org and detail your situation for us.
