Literacy Improvement

Springhurst Primary School, VIC

Springhurst Primary, Chiltern Primary, Wahgunyah Primary and Barnawartha Primary are four small schools in rural north-east Victoria. The schools have between 24 and 70 students, and all four Principals have active teaching roles.

Lack of resources is a key reason for poor outcomes, with literacy standards declining due to limited reading material. Teachers are forced to scrape by using old, outdated books; or relying on unreliable internet coverage for reading handouts. New books are almost non-existent and students disengage because they have nothing new or interesting to read.

Your support will fund these four schools to buy and maintain a shared resource box of reading materials. Teachers will be able to cater to a variety of learning styles, and a new generation of country children will improve literacy standards and develop a love of literature.

Staff members from all four schools will work together to create teaching and learning resources and undertake peer observations to create best practice of using these texts in guided reading focus groups.
