Improving literacy is a school-wide priority at Glenroy College. Literacy for Learning (LfL) forms a significant part of the College’s literacy approach. LfL is an explicit language approach which uses a range of strategies to develop students’ understanding of texts to help them read and write. The College is actively involved in the Language and Literacy for Learning (L3) collaboration initiative with local schools which works to build cohesive literacy practices across the schools.

The College also has a number of literacy supports for students who find reading and writing challenging. These include the Middle Years Literacy and Numeracy Support (MYLNS) program funded by the Department of Education and Training, and a targeted individual Literacy Support program for Year 7 and 8 students.
