Learning Together

Learning so you can be your kids best teacher!

Learning Together is a community based literacy program that supports parents to develop their own reading skills, so they can promote reading and learning together with their children.

Learning Together also tackles skills in other key literacies, including finance, health, digital and numeracy.

Learning Together runs over 8 weeks, and is held during school hours at DBay North and Moreton Downs State Schools.

The program uses fun scenarios such as cooking, craft and scrapbooking as backdrops to teach these valuable skills
