Time to get ready for a new school year and a haircut is a good place to start, there’s also evidence to support the importance of a cut that matches each child’s individuality.
Research shows that 85 per cent of parents agree their children’s clothing and accessories reflect their personalities, 93 per cent of parents buy toys and games that appeal to their child’s personal interests and 86 per cent admit their children only participate in extra-curricular activities that are of interest to them.
The education system isn’t quite as aware of the need for individuality, 77 per cent of parents surveyed agreed it’s a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach, 88 per cent felt their child could do with more individualised attention at school and 90 per cent agreed that, now more than ever, kids need additional learning support.
To raise awareness around the importance of personalised experiences, online tutoring service Cluey Learning is offering free Back to School haircuts for school kids via hairdressing chain, Just Cuts. Applicants will receive a free haircut at any of the 190 salons nationwide.
Cluey Learning Chief Learning Officer, Dr Selina Samuels says, “It’s hard to reconcile that we expect such a deep level of personalisation for our everyday experiences, yet we don’t demand the same for our children’s learning. Because, just as you wouldn’t expect your child to have the same hairstyle as every other student in their school, you wouldn’t expect them to be identical learners.
Additional key findings from the research include:
Cluey Learning offers school children live, face-to-face tutoring support in a 1-to-1 and small group setting. Its online adaptive platform delivers over 790 tutors, bespoke tutor and student matching and an array of digital technologies to aid performance and delivery of the Australian National Curriculum.
School children who take up the offer of a free Back to School haircut will also receive 20 per cent off Cluey. Visit https://clueylearning.com.au/haircuts to request a free haircut.
