VINNIES After School Reading Club

This program runs from 3.15pm – 4.30pm each Wednesday afternoon and is supervised by a member of St Joey’s staff and is staffed by Vinnies Education employees and Secondary School Students from Santa Maria College.  The program is designed for children to further develop their love of reading, experience reading one on one and to improve their reading skills.

The program runs as a Reading Club open to students in Grades 2-6. It is not a homework, tutoring or remedial English class, rather it is an opportunity for children to enjoy books and experience the benefits of reading.
