STAWELL - Stawell 502 Primary School has put a generous $1000 donation from the Stawell Lion's club towards its Daily 5 Literacy program.
The money has been used to purchase books for classrooms to build and extend classroom libraries.
Through the Daily 5 program students at the school are reading for extended amounts of time which is improving their reading strategies and comprehension.
They read a range of books while teachers work on individual goals with students to further improve their reading capabilities.
Students are choosing "Good-Fit" books, the type of books that are best for them to comprehend and practise their reading.
Stawell 502 Primary School also recently received $300 from the Senior Citizens Club which will also go towards purchasing books.
