Intervention and EAL support
At Hillsmeade P.S we have several programs to assist students who need extra support, as well as programs catering for extending our students.
The Levelled Literacy Intervention provides regular intensive small group instruction which supplements classroom literacy in the Early Years. (Di Poulter, Jo Monrroy, Kathryn Kidd).
The English Language Support is a small group program aiming to develop student oral language and vocabulary. (Angela Cooper)
The Extension in Excellence program is designed for our high achieving Grade 6 students to extend their knowledge and thinking. Students explore literacy and numeracy skills at a more advanced level. (Meg Yates).
The Oral Language program looks to support student oral language skills leading to improved learning in other key learning areas. (Kathryn Kidd).
Support in reading, writing and maths is offered to Grade 3, 4 and 5 students with regular small group instruction. (Sharron Porter, Judy Kenny).
