Aquinas College, Gold Coast, has consolidated a range of literacy initiatives within a Whole School Literacy Plan and an accompanying Action Plan. The plan involves scaffolding and modelling written assignments across the key curriculum areas; teaching research and referencing skills in each key curriculum area; creating a reading culture through programs such as Literature Circles, Readers’ Cup and Australian Readers’ Challenge; and using data collection to assess and improve literacy programs.
