PLANT

Year 7 students are invited to be involved in a Peer Literacy & Numeracy Tutorial Program (PLANT) that run after school in Term 1.

The program involves Year Eleven tutors (i.e. selected from within the school who have been trained as tutors) working one‐on‐one with Year 7 students in an effort to assist students with their homework tasks, organizational and study skills.

Another advantage of this program is the relationship that develops between senior student leaders and students from the middle school, again supporting the younger students in their transition into high school. Each session will focus on a specific skill with staff there to assist when necessary.

A key focus of this program is to make the learning sessions fun, rewarding and positive so as to build confidence and enhance attitudes towards learning and high school.
