Improving literacy outcomes for all students is a priority at our school. Our Early Years Reading Intervention Program provides timely proactive intervention focussing on improving the reading skills of students in year 1 and year 2. Students requiring reading intervention are identified by their classroom teacher and receive small group teaching sessions from our Reading Intervention Teacher.
At Coorara we offer the Quicksmart Maths Intervention Program. Quicksmart is a Mathematics program aimed at supporting middle primary students who need additional support to learn basic mathematical operations.
We are very fortunate to have a CPSW (Christian Pastoral Support Worker) supporting the Coorara Community- students, parents, families and staff. Sue Healy works at Coorara for 2 days per week. Sue's role is varied and includes working alongside teachers in classrooms, supporting excursions, running lunchtime activities and coordinating the community garden. Sue's room is located in the Blue Unit. You may also contact Sue through the front office or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
All students are welcome to attend the daily Breakfast Club held in the Blue Unit. The Breakfast Club serves up a healthy breakfast which includes toast, cereal, yoghurt and fruit. The Breakfast Club is run by parent and community volunteers.
