Kindergarten Incursion - Better Beginnings Literacy Program

On Tuesday 25 May the Kindergarten students at the Calista campus participated in an engaging incursion hosted by Rhiannon Smith (Staff member from Kwinana Public Library) delivering the Better Beginnings Literacy Program to the students. These sessions are designed to connect families with books through free reading packs. Rhiannon read two books with the students, engaging them in song and imparting information to staff and students about the library services on offer to them locally.

Not only does Better Beginnings offer reading packs to families, but also a new resource for parents, a literacy-based text messaging program ('Kindytxt') to support literacy practices in families with Kindergarten aged children.
