The Gawura Morning Reading Program

Reading with a Gawura student is truly the nicest way to start the day. Volunteers from the community and our corporate partners are invited to be a part of our Morning Reading Program.

COVID-19 restrictions prevent visitors from coming into the school at the moment but students can’t wait for our morning visitors to return!

The reading program is for Kindergarten to Year 6 students and is on every morning from 8.10am for 30 minutes. Volunteers listen to one or more children read in small groups and help them with difficult words and comprehension. If this is something you or your company would like to be involved in, please contact us.

We’d love to have you join us. Volunteers usually commit to one day per week for at least one school term. The reading program makes an incredible difference to lifting the literacy levels of our students and also provides a wonderful opportunity to meet people of all ages and from all types of backgrounds who are committed to supporting education.

Before commencing, new volunteers are required to complete the following:

1. Provide a current Working with Children Check Clearance Number

2. Complete the application for volunteering that will be emailed to you and read our Gawura Volunteer Program Booklet

3. Agree to the volunteer code of conduct

4. Attend a one-hour induction session at the school on child protection.
