Reading - Every Day Every Night

Charters Towers Central State School’s number one improvement agenda in 2014 is reading, and already our school is witnessing some very pleasing improvements across the school.  At Central we have a motto - Read Every Day Every Night.  Children are expected to be reading at home every day every night, for at least 20 minutes.  Charters Towers Central State School has also developed a research based reading intervention program that operates each day using qualified school personal which is proving very successful.    The program has only been in operation at Central for 10 weeks yet has witnessed students improving their reading levels at rates well above their chronological age equivalent with many students who previously were reluctant readers now fluently reading on par or above their grade levels.   The key driver of student reading success however involves parental support at home, and we thank the parents and guardians who are reading with their children ‘every day every night’.
