Year 10 Mentors for Literacy
Year 7 students are benefiting from one to one support
Leadership skills are being developed by a group of dedicated Year 10 students who are currently mentoring Year 7s with their Literacy every Friday morning. Providing one to one support, the mentors have taken on a teaching role; showing Year 7s a range of strategies to use when tackling tricky spellings.
English Teacher, Ms Janet Macdonald said: "So far, the results have been amazing, the Year 7s are performing consistently well in the tests completed at the end of each session. Additionally, the atmosphere has been brilliant - the older students are realising just how much they are capable of when they take on a new challenge. The effort of all students involved in this project is commendable"
