Literacy and Numeracy

OLOR 2017 illustrative  0081.jpg

Our school is committed to the development of our students’ literacy and numeracy skills. Included in our strategic plan are initiatives supported by Australian Government's National Curriculum. The Partnership also includes an investment from Catholic Education SA.

We have implemented a whole school, explicitly taught program to teach  Reading and Spelling.  This phonetic program is taught as a part of our morning Literacy Blocks. The program, 'Cracking the ABC Code' is unique to Our Lady of the River School and is helping all our students in Literacy.  Our results in this area are improving greatly since adopting the program in 2017.
