Classroom Helpers Training Program
Wheelers Hill Primary School is strongly committed to building important relationships between school and home. An integral part of our literacy program is parental assistance. Classroom teachers value the help of parents to enable them to provide high quality teaching and learning programs.
As part of our Literacy program, WHPS offers a Classroom Helpers Course. The course comprises two one-hour sessions focusing on all aspects of Literacy - Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. It will give an insight into the types of activities that are part of our literacy program, the procedures involved in assisting, as well as relevant questions and prompts to support students and encourage them to extend their skills and strategies. We also provide a detailed session on the MSL (Multi-sensory Structured Language) approach to the teaching of literacy at Wheelers Hill.
This program is not compulsory for those who would like to help out in classrooms but is worthwhile for those who would like basic skills and strategies in effectively helping small groups and individual children as they begin their literacy journey. While the knowledge and skills gained are valuable for supporting classroom teachers they also provide insights into helping your own children at home.
This program will run in Term 1 each year.
