At St. Mark’s the teaching of Literacy – Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening is fundamental to all areas of the curriculum.


Literacy learning occurs every day for approximately two hours.


All students participate in a variety of teaching and learning activities, which cater to their individual literacy needs with a focus on the four areas of literacy.


Students are assessed regularly and the results then form the basis of the teaching and learning activities which are prepared for the students.


Oral Language development is fundamental to learning. We highly value our work in this area, with a Speech Pathologist employed to work in classrooms with teachers and students every week.
