Peer Tutoring

Year 11 students are trained as tutors in a TAFE (technical and further education) accredited course to improve reading for underperforming students in Year 7.

  • Students meet in the library each morning from 8:25am to 8:40am.
  • Tutors work with students on texts they will use in class.  
  • Reading and comprehension skills are improved. 
  • Students gain confidence when approaching classwork. 
  • It is a settling start to the day.

This program has proved to be extremely valuable, with Year 7 students average an improvement of two reading years and Year 11 students gained leadership skills and confidence.
