OSCAR Reading Club

Our School Cares About Reading – OSCAR Reading Club

This program is designed to enable nominated students to read with an adult in a friendly and supportive environment.

Aims of the OSCAR reading club:

  • To increase the confidence, self-esteem and literacy skills in reading
  • Increase fluency
  • Increase word knowledge and vocabulary
  • To inspire a group of voluntary helpers to provide direct instruction and increase support for students
  • To increase community participation in schools

Parents who have volunteered to help out at OSCAR hear 2-3 students read and have a discussion with them about what they have read each time they visit. Each child’s session lasts approximately 10 minutes.

OSCAR Reading Club runs on Monday, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8.15am – 8.45am.
