Summer Schools are specifically designed for Years 5, 6 & 7 students who have been identified through NAPLAN (National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy) as requiring additional help in the areas of literacy and numeracy.
Summer Schools do not replace the existing support that your child is receiving at their school. Rather, this is an opportunity for your child to receive additional assistance in an enjoyable learning environment. At Summer Schools, students are taught to understand the relationship between the language of chance and probability, and to justify their decision-making processes by using this knowledge. Parents are encouraged to support their children’s learning. There are many things you can do to help your child practice their reading skills including reading a range of texts, discussing how language is used, asking your child to describe people, places or objects, and engaging in word building exercises.
“I have never seen my daughter so excited about doing school work. All she does is talk about what she has learned each day. Thank you for this opportunity.” – Summer Schools parent feedback.
“Summer Schools was great. I hope I get to go again next time.” – student feedbank.
