At St Patrick’s, our students are involved in a 100-minute literacy block, five days a week. Literacy activities are also incorporated into library and computer lessons each week.
Students concentrate on spelling, grammar, comprehension, reading fluency and mastering the various types of texts including informative, persuasive and imaginative writing during literacy lessons.
St Patrick’s also has a designated Learning Centre (Study Room). Students attend the room for specialised programs such as Mini Lit and MacLit, as well as one-on-one reading to enhance fluency and comprehension.
At St Patrick’s, we also have an well-resourced school library inclusive of technology.
