to learning for children on the Mornington Peninsula
Our big project for 2019, No Limits, brings together five outstanding primary school principals and their feeder kinders and opens the doors to success in education for the incredible young minds in their prep and kinder classes.
Crib Point, Wallaroo, Eastbourne, Mornington Park and Tyabb Rail Primary Schools and their feeder kinders will build up the oral language of the children through intensive speech therapy, incorporation of the Abecedarian Program and expansive learning through rich texts and life broadening experiences.
Based on the outstandingly successful pilot of 2018 at Crib Point Primary, this major project will support over 600 children over three years to have the speaking and listening skills to be ready to learn to read in year one.
$500 scholarships for children transitioning from primary to secondary.
One on one daily literacy support for children below average in literacy.
One on one tutoring with family support to bridge gaps in literacy and numeracy and bring kids up to par.
