Three days a week senior students from the Rangmarie – Year 7 & 8 come into the Harinui Syndicate to work with the Year 1 children for a short time.
They read with us, our books, our scrap books, our sight word lists and also our alphabet cards. We enjoy reading and re-reading our stories and poems to give us Reading Mileage and to help us become better readers. The girls are helpful and kind. They like working with us.
