There are three Resource Teachers: Literacy based at the Riverina School Literacy Centre. We take referrals from 36 schools in the local area and provide short, intensive, supplementary support to those learners with the highest literacy needs across the cluster.

Our goal is for students to make and maintain accelerated progress and be able to work at or near the level of their peers so they can benefit from effective classroom teaching.

We work directly (one-on-one, or in small groups) or indirectly (by supporting and collaborating with the classroom teacher). Usually we utilise a combination of approaches. We are able to provide up to approximately 45 sessions of support.

Please feel free to get in touch with any of us if you have any queries.

Kind Regards

Tania, Julie, and Sarah
