Boost is a literacy intervention program designed for students in Years 7 and 8 whose current literacy levels indicate that they would benefit from some extra support and targeted instruction.

It is a structured subject that is delivered in a smaller group setting, or with an extra teacher, to allow for more personalised teaching and learning.

After participating in a range of diagnostic assessments, identified students join a Boost class which will cover modified Humanities content with an explicit focus on building and enhancing reading, writing, spelling, speaking, and listening ability.

Students engage in a wide range of enjoyable and creative tasks, with a particular emphasis on hands on learning, and continue in the Boost program until they have consolidated their skills and gained more confidence.
