Peer Reading Scheme

For a number of years now, the school has run a reading scheme for students in year 7 to improve their reading skills. It operates in the library for 25 minutes at the beginning of each day.

Year 10 students undertaking the TAFE Peer Literacy Tutoring certificate, pair up with Year 7 students each day to work through texts they are currently doing in class. The program has an outstanding record of success in enhancing junior students' reading levels. A number of high achieving Year 10 tutors were themselves tutees in the program when they were in Year 7.

Each year we receive funding assistance from the local Camden Rotary Club who cover the costs of the program
