Literacy matters, currently, it is estimated that close to 45% of Australians have literacy levels that are considered to be low.  This means that every day tasks that lots of us take for granted – like reading a magazine or novel, making sense of a timetable, knowing how to verify a source, or even just knowing how to order something on-line – can be a worrying and stressful experience.  Improving literacy and reflecting on how to support our young people is so important that during the September break, we were genuinely excited to attend a workshop held at the Brisbane Reading Centre.   The guest speaker was Professor Peter Freebody.  Professor Freebody was instrumental in the development of the Australian Curriculum: English, and also the general capability for literacy.   The sessions focussed on the way different subject use literacy to shape up different ways of learning, knowing and interacting for learning and assessment.  We look forward to continuing to build on our strong literacy culture and encouraging our students to read, read, ask tough questions and then read some more!
