Parents as Partners is a reading partnership between parents and our Junior School classes.
Parents are trained to listen to students read aloud, as well as encourage sound comprehension through the use of phonic skills and other reading strategies. This results in students reading more fluently and expressively and gaining an improved understanding of what is read.
A weekly roster is devised so that every child in Junior School reads and changes take-home books regularly. We hope you can join us in this worthwhile and rewarding volunteer literacy program.
All volunteers are required to have a Working with Children Check and Heathdale Christian College must be registered as a nominated organisation.
Letters will be forwarded to parents the first week of Term 1 giving you the opportunity to list your preferred rostered day and also register to attend one of the following ‘Parents as Partners’ training sessions.
