Literacy

Literacy involves students reading, writing, speaking and listening. All learners are supported by explicit and scaffolded teaching in these areas.

 

Students are encouraged to engage fully in their learning and we believe this empowers our students to become life-long learners. Our aim is to equip each student with their own set of strategies to assist independent learning.

Ongoing assessment, monitoring and evaluating are vital to the planning and teaching of our literacy program and teachers maintain high expectations of all students. We believe in equality for each student, therefore literacy teaching is personalised to ensure that each student reaches their full potential.

Students are immersed in good literature and quality resources are provided to ensure learning is purposeful.

Students become literate as they develop the skills to listen, read, view, write, speak, as well as, creating print, visual and digital materials accurately and purposefully.
