The Reading Recovery Program is an intensive literacy program that is aimed at year 1 students to provide them with extra support in achieving their personal best in reading and writing. The program teaches and reinforces reading strategies, letter and sound recognition and many other elements, essential to facilitating successful reading and writing. Students who participate in the program meet with the Reading Recovery Teacher on a daily basis for a 30 minute individual lesson. With the support of the Reading Recovery Teacher, the student’s classroom teacher and parents, the child is able to flourish under nuturing guidance.

At Vermont Primary School, we are lucky to have Mrs Noelene Iacovangelo as our Reading Recovery Teacher! Mrs Iacovangelo has been instrumental in providing our year 1 students with the extra support that they need. As a result of Mrs Iacovangelo’s dedication to these children, many students of Vermont Primary School that have gone through the Reading Recovery Program are avid readers who all appreciate the effort and hardwork that Mrs I (as she is known) has shown them.
