At Baden Powell College Bridging the Gap is designed to assist students in Years 5 - 8 who are experiencing difficulty with literacy. Children must meet at least three times a week for a one on one teaching session for 45 minutes.
They receive assistance in all areas of literacy reading, writing and spelling. The trained staff or parent records activities and progress throughout the program. Regular contact with the classroom teacher ensures continuity of the program, which runs for approx.
10 weeks, after which the child returns to the mainstream with a renewed self esteem.
