girl readingWrite to Read is a school and community based professional development model to enable teachers and community educators to deliver high quality literacy programmes for children. Professional development is delivered by St. Patrick’s College in partnership with participating schools and community organisations.

We adopt an evidence-based, holistic approach to literacy issues and help schools and communities to meet the literacy needs of children in customised ways that build their motivation, engagement, agency, creativity and higher-order thinking skills.

Our vision is for a whole school, whole community approach to literacy where expectations will be raised, parents will be empowered and children will be supported and encouraged to develop reading and writing as lifelong habits.
