WHYALLA STUART Primary School R-6
Whyalla Stuart Primary School is a small school with a strong sense of community connection.
Student Literacy development is actively underpinned by targeted literacy groups involving all students and staff. Our Junior Primary classes participate in daily explicit literacy lessons based on the InitiaLit program. It is an evidence-based whole-class literacy program providing all children with the essential core knowledge and strong foundations to become successful readers and writers through the explicit and systematic teaching of phonics.
Students in all year levels participate in daily Heggarty sessions to develop their phonological and phonemic awareness. Heggarty provides students with consistent and repeated instruction, and this transfers to developing a student’s decoding and encoding skills.
