Standing Tall in Literacy and Numeracy


The Standing Tall in Literacy and Numeracy strategy at St Joseph's Primary School in Taree, NSW, was initiated to meet the aims of the Closing the Gap commitment for Aboriginal students. In developing a whole-school approach to improving students' literacy, St Joseph's connected with and sought support from the local Aboriginal community. This led to the development of strategies to support increasing attendance rates among Aboriginal students, raising the profile of literacy in homes, and improving transition processes between preschool/home and school.
