Our Programs - Story Dogs

 

 We are very lucky at Waikiki Primary School to have two wonderful Story Dog volunteers that visit our school and read with some of our children. 

 

Story Dogs Mission: “To make reading fun for children, so they become confident lifelong readers. No child should be left behind in literacy.”

 

The magic of Story Dogs: “When children read to a dog, the outcomes are amazing! It is a non-judgemental setting, the children's focus improves, their literacy skills increase and their confidence soars. The accepting, loving nature of dogs gives this program its magic and helps children relax, open up, try harder and have fun while reading to a friendly, calm dog.” 

Thankyou Story Dogs for providing our children with an engaging reading experience!
