We have a strong emphasis on Literacy in our curriculum. The acquisition of skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking are vital to all other areas of learning. Each class devotes a daily 2 hour block to literacy and parents are encouraged to become involved in the classroom activities. 

St. Vincent’s was fortunate to be part of the Oral Language Supporting Early Literacy research initiative implemented by the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria. The aim of this research initiative is to improve the oral language skills of students in the early years, thereby resulting in a measurable improvement in literacy performance. 

At St Vincent’s we also offer the Reading Recovery Program which is a one to one early intervention program that provides an opportunity for students who, after one year of schooling, have not yet established effective reading and writing processes. The Reading Recovery Program provides daily specialist support for students who require assistance with reaching the literacy benchmarks.
