The learning and support teacher (L.a.S.T.) has worked collaboratively with classroom teachers to assess their students with additional educational requirements. This year the learning and support teacher supported students from Years 1 – 6 in literacy and language. The L.a.S.T provided direct instruction, monitored and assessed student progress and adjusted learning programs.
The L.a.S.T is also part of the Learning Support Team. This team meets throughout the year to ensure that the needs of all students requiring additional assistance in the school are being met.
The Reading recovery program has been operating at Haberfield Public School for the past 24 years. In 2015, ten students graduated from the program. The reading recovery teacher closely monitored former students in Years 2 and 3 at the end of each semester. The Reading Buddy Program assisted students to consolidate strategies acquired during the program. Year 5 students tutored younger students who required reading support.
