Paired Reading Programme
On Friday 16th February a group of sixth form students attended St Ambrose Barlow Primary School to celebrate the completion of the paired reading programme. The programme is a successful partnership between the St Mary's sixth form and St Ambrose Barlow where students support their younger peers with paired reading. A lovely ceremony took place where the children handed our sixth form students a certificate and gave a final thank you for their support.
There were some heart-warming moments too as the children’s excitement had grown through the day as they relished seeing their mentors again. Mr Robinson, Director of the sixth form said "I am really proud and privileged to be here today and to be a part of this wonderful community collaboration. I am so proud of both sets of students; the primary school children for making such great progress in reading and my sixth form students for offering their support. It's these sorts of initiatives that really express what being a sixth form student in St Marys is all about. Well done everybody."
