How you can support your child

While you are working, get a parent / carer to take a photo or video of you and post it to twitter tagging @OGATrust and using the hashtag #OGATchores. If you want to share a picture of you completing chores, you can submit it using the form found in the navigation bar titled "Tell us about it."

You can help out too! How?

  • Encouragement!

  • Taking the photo of your child at work and tweet about it

  • Create some form of rewards system for when they complete chores
