A remarkable team of Year 11 students have been acting as reading mentors for a group of Year 7 students.

The Reading Mentors have been meeting twice a week throughout the term to support struggling readers and inspire a love of books.

Their dedication has paid off and the mentors were presented with their Bronze Awards and cinema vouchers by Miss Frier,College Principal, in acknowledgement of their hard work and dedication.

"We have had student Reading Mentors in school for many years but this year’s team of mentors has been outstanding," said Mrs Wrennall, College librarian.

"They have shown great commitment and dedication. It has been wonderful to see how much the confidence of the younger students has grown.”

Marta returned as a mentor after seeing the progress of her student last year.

“I enjoyed reading with Year 7s last year and seeing their reading quiz results exceed all our expectations.

"The proud smiles of my student when they did well gave me a satisfying sense of achievement."

Mentor Nazanin said: “Since I have been a reading mentor I have felt very proud of the fact I am helping someone and that I am giving something back to the school community.

"I feel it is a blessing to be able to help others and I am grateful for the opportunity."

Jess, Faith, Chloe, Beth and Andrew all said that best thing about being a Reading Mentor is "knowing that you are helping someone else".

“It has been a joy and a privilege to witness our older students being so supportive of younger members of the College," said Mrs Ware, assistant vice principal.

"They have given up their time and, as a result, helped others with a vital life skill. We are all very proud."
