Literacy Buddies Program


​This week saw the introduction of a new Hendra State School initiative to help promote links with business community and to improve the writing skills of our students.

Lawyers, Paralegals and staff from the law firm Corrs Chambers Westgarth have been writing letters to the students in Years 3 to Year 7.  The program, co-ordinated by the community organisation ARDOCH, aims to improve the writing skills of our students, and to give our students a taste of life after school.

Over the remainder of the year, the students will exchange letters with their literacy buddy, and prepare activities for a visit by participating members of Corrs Chambers Westgarth early in Term Three.  The students will visit Corrs Chambers Westgarth in Term Four this year.

The students have just received their first letters, and are excitedly preparing their return letters!
