MiniLit Literacy Intervention Program

Newborough Primary School provides a Macquarie University literacy support program Pre-primary and Year One called MiniLit since 2015. The MiniLit Program focusses on the key elements of early reading programs: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary development and text comprehension.

The program is timetabled for 3 days per week. One fully trained facilitator coordinates the programs. MiniLit children generally attend for 35 minutes, 3 days a week.

A purposeful room provides a comfortable learning environment for the children. It is well resourced with MiniLit resources and recommended reading book series to support the programs.                        

Newborough acknowledges the Whadjuk Noongar people as traditional custodians of this boodja (land) and recognises their continuing spiritual connection to country and moort (family). We would like to show respect to Elders past, present and emerging. It is a privilege to waabiny (play), kadadjiny (learn) and to make bunji (friends) on Whadjuk Noongar boodja.
