Year 9s mentor Year 3 reading

03 June 2021

As service to the community, Year 9 students listen to Year 3 students practice their reading. Through gentle prompting, pausing and praising, the little ones enjoy reading stories before school on Thursdays and Fridays. Beside reading practice, both groups of students form relations that often carry right through their school journey. I know my own girls, both graduated some years ago, retain fond memories or their experience as both the reader, and later as they participate in the DofE Award, as mentors themselves. So much good comes from the program!
