Accelerated Literacy

The Accelerated Literacy' teaching sequence is a powerful and effective tool for teaching literacy. All students learn to read and work at a highly literate level on one class text.

Six staff at Warialda Public School are currently trained and teaching this program.  Staff are dedicated to fully implementing teaching strategies to further improve student literacy skills. Staff aim to create a supportive and structured learning environment which will help all students to learn in a positive way.

Reading Recovery

Reading Recovery has run continuously for the past 13 years at Warialda Public School. The aim of this program is to take Year 1 students, who are achieving at below stage expectations in reading, and help them to become more independent readers and writers. Six students graduated from the program annually, reaching a reading level of 16 or above. Mrs Linda O'Brien is our trained Reading Recovery teacher at Warialda Public School and she will continue to work with Year 1 students in 2011.

Active After School Sport

The Active After School' program is a Federal Government initiative designed to improve student gross motor skills and encourage them to participate in sporting activities. Each term students are able to select a sporting activity centred on fun, skill and co-ordination aimed at promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Regular ssessions run one afternoon per week and this program is coordinated by Miss Cole.
