Stage 4 Reading Program

We're committed to boosting reading literacy. We use the Renaissance Reading program with all Stage 4 students to help them develop their reading skills and foster a love for reading. As part of the program, students are provided with opportunities for reading, personalised book selections and the time to complete reading tests to monitor their reading progress over the course of the year. Students are provided with a personalised reading level based on their test and are supported in choosing books at their level of understanding. 

Key events

  • Book Week runs annually with events and activities in the library to celebrate

  • Author visits. We have previously had author visits from many award-winning Australian authors like Sarah Ayoub, Will Kostakis, Tobias Madden and Phillip Gwynne.
