MiniLit has been run at Brighton Primary School since xxxx. MiniLit is a research initiative of the Maquarie University. The program is a highly effective and intensive early literacy intervention program. It has been specifically researched and designed for students in year one who meet a specific selection critera. Tutors in MiniLit have undertaken extensive training to be able to deliver the program. The course duration is for twenty weeks and presented in a small group setting, four – five days per week, for an hour per day. The content is very structured and systematic and since its implementation last year has seen great success.
