Assisting youth working through big emotions
As per their Thursday routine, the literacy group students from Wentworthville Primary School gathered around in small groups. The teacher assigned different literacy activities to each of the group.
Diane, the EdConnect Learning Support Volunteer was working with the bunch assigned with the reading exercise. Diane and students knew the drill. They started reading out loud one by one each taking turns to read a page, starting with Diane. Just as they had begun, a new boy entered the classroom crying.
