Over the past twelve months the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation provided over 3000 literacy support kits to Indigenous children who are without any books, pens, software and other important literacy resources and are struggling to make literacy gains at school. The project donated much needed literacy supplies to the many marginalised Indigenous children living in remote areas around Australia. The literacy packs promote reading at home and school. The positive feedback from the students, parents and school teachers reinforces wider research that indicates that children who have never had access to good reading material make more rapid progress when they get to read their own new books.
Literacy, Evaluation and Support packs are offered to schools, tutors, parents and carers to assess the literacy skills of Indigenous children on a regular basis. From these results further support will be provided based in individual need.
The Literacy, Evaluation and Support packs enable the Foundation to identify the children that most benefit from our extended range of support programs; including tutoring and literacy camps.
One of the many barriers for students is the lack of basic literacy resources to aid their learning. These Literacy, Evaluation and Support Packs are being supplied to students in NT, WA and QLD.
