Order of Malta Australia


Semester 2 of the Read to Learn program is underway


Semester 2 of the Read to Learn program at Preston North East Primary School is underway!

The program involves members and volunteers of the Order of Malta and students from Australian Catholic University providing one-on-one tutoring during weekly session to students from the school identified as requiring additional support to develop their reading and literacy skills.

The program launched in Semester 1 and due to its success, it will become an ongoing project of the Order of Malta and Australian Catholic University (ACU) Community Hub in Melbourne. The primary school students were so excited that the program has started again and are very happy to be part of ‘the club’, (as they affectionately have nicknamed it).

Currently there are 16 primary school students in the program with many more students on the waiting list, with the main issue limiting the projects expansion is the number of tutors available.

What does it take to be a tutor? A Read to Learn tutor shares their experiences.

Read to Learn sessions forsemester 2 will run from Monday 14 August and runs till Monday 30 October. Session times are 3.15 till 4.45 at Preston North East Primary School. If you are interested in volunteering email for more information.

The Order of Malta and ACU Community Hub rely on the generosity of donors to continue serving the Melbourne community. Gifts of $2 and more are tax deductible for Australian taxpayers and can be made using our secure online donation facility.
