SOCIAL SKILLS

At St Paul's we recognise that some children need to have these social thoughts and skills explicitly taught to them.  As such, we are committed to identifying these students and engaging them in social skills programs that are targeted to encourage individuals to focus their social attention, interpret the social context and problem solve to figure out how to respond.

MINILIT

St Paul's Lutheran School utilises a targeted Literacy Support Program called Minilit. MiniLit is an evidence-based, explicit and effective early literacy intervention program for teaching reading skills to children who are in the bottom 25% of the expected range for their age group, usually in Year 1 or 2. MiniLit is a Tier 2 small group program (up to four students per group) within a Response to Intervention framework, but it can also be used on a one-to-one basis. Minilit compliments our SMART Spelling and Big Write Literacy programs.

As is consistent practice across all that we do at St Paul's, partnership between parents and the school is crucial. Parents are part of the decision making process and student progress is discussed with parents before children enter the MiniLit program.
The program works in either small group sessions or individualised support for students. Our Learning Coaches withdraw students for short, sharp booster sessions each week, focussing in on identified weakness.
Students are closely monitored on the program and assessment is conducted throughout the term, so that we can collect data and see the progress being made by the students.
Below are some videos which give more detail about elements of the program. Please contact the school if you would like further information about this valuable program.
