Spark is a reading program for 10 students where corporate volunteers partner with our students in the early years each week for one term to offer one-on-one reading and support.
These weekly one-on-one sessions also provide an opportunity to introduce sustained adult conversations in English, encourage the student personally and offer additional adult role models into their lives.
Our school is proud to be involved in this program with Price Waterhouse Coopers, a member of the Australian Business and Community Network. ABCN is a partnership of highly committed business leaders and companies who work on mentoring and coaching programs throughout Australia. In 2007, ABCN was the winner of the Prime Minister's Community Business Partnership Multi Large Business Award.
