Student 2 Student Reading Program

Student 2 Student Reading Program

This year 23 Scotchies from Year 5 - 12 participated in the annual S2S Reading Program run by The Smith Family. The program saw our students act as a buddy for a younger reader from a disadvantaged background.

Most of the young readers had fallen years behind their peers in literacy, and lacked skill and confidence in their reading. The pairs worked together 2-3 times per week over an 18 week period and achieved some wonderful results, with the average reader catching up to their peers by 13 months. Our results showed that some of our pairs exceeded this already impressive amount, and achieved an improvement of up to 2 years and 10 months! All of our students have been positive role models for their young readers, and should feel very proud of their efforts and achievements. We look forward to growing the program in 2019 and making even more of an impact on the educational progress of young South Australians in need.

“At the beginning of the program my buddy was on level 7 and she is now on level 22. She has also become a lot more confident. When we started she was very shy and now she is very confident and talks to me about lots of different things (she gets a bit off topic sometimes).” - Winter Birkett (Year 8)
