Next term Glenbrook School will be running an exciting series called Reading Together. This was last run a few years ago and is a great opportunity offered again. ...

October 2016 Update
Quoting from Parent Feedback about the Reading Together® programme available here:
"Understanding the process of the children's learning to read has really helped me to be more patient with my daughter."
"Before the workshop it was a real struggle to read together now we have made it into an enjoyable experience each day."
"It was a really great programme."
"Session 3 had a lot of 'lightbulb' moments for me - really helped me appreciate what the kids see when they try to read."
"Reinforced the importance of reading."
"Valuable programme where it's just good to hear that there are other parents in the same boat with children struggling with reading - makes you feel not so alone."
"I wish these skills taught were available when teaching my first to read rather than the last. Would have made the process a lot easier over the years."
"This course is great for new parents learning to deal with school and homework."
