The Smith Family's student2student programme matches an older student (Buddy) with a younger student (Reader) who is behind in their reading. The Buddy (our student) provides support and reading assistance to the Reader so that they can improve their confidence and skills in reading.

S2S was an incredible service activity that I participated in this year. It enabled me to connect with a young reader somewhere in Australia, helping improve her reading skills over the course of 18 weeks. I committed to an hour a week of calling my reader over the phone and sharing a book with her. I loved being apart of the adventure and hearing my reader improve her skills so much over the time period.
