Students Achieving Success Program

16/03/2015

Year 5 SAS Program

At school we have a new program called SAS.  SAS stands for 'Students Achieving Success'.  SAS is an online reading and writing program to help students learn and go from a C grade to a B grade, or from a B grade to hopefully an A grade.  When it comes to NAPLAN testing, the SAS students won't get scared of the reading and writing parts of the test.  Eight year 5 students were selected to participate in the pilot program this semester, based on their academic results.

SAS allow studetns to talk to a real online teacher and not a recorded voice.  Our reading teacher is Ms Armit and our writing teacher is Mr Horne.  They are in Charters Towers.  Mrs Fitzgerald is our teacher for SAS at Bray Park.  We can ask the teachers questions using a chat box or using a microphone and the whole class can hear the questions and answers.  We are working with students from Ayr and Bowen.
