[Extract] The proposed pilot is designed to support individualised literacy and language learning for the Indigenous students in P-7 at St Michael's and Years 8-9 at Abergowrie who currently are among the well-documented Indigenous students who fail to achieve national and international literacy benchmarks.

This project includes teachers, Indigenous Education Workers, education support staff, parents and community in an attempt to develop a sustained improvement in students’ literacy and language development. By integrating the use of existing data collection (Townsville Catholic Education Data Jug), monitoring (Indigenous Bandscales) and First Steps strategy bank (Reading, Writing, Oral Language) the project will individualise and fast-track literacy and language learning. This approach will be supported by intensive professional development and training for teachers, Indigenous Education Workers, allied staff, parents and community.
