St. Damian’s provides a Literacy program that aims to challenge, engage and support students in developing their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills.

We dedicate two hours each day to Literacy. During this time, students work collaboratively in small groups and engage in meaningful activities catering for their individual learning needs and styles.

We encourage an interest in and love for Reading and Writing by providing children with a variety of rich and stimulating texts.

We invite parents to assist in the classroom during the Literacy block. A Literacy Assistant workshop is offered each year to support parents who are interested in becoming a parent helper.
