 In 2010, Raymond Terrace Public School began offering MULTILIT (Making Up Lost Time in Literacy) to students who require extra support in reading. MULTILIT is a literacy program for low-progress readers in Years 3 to 6 which has been developed by Macquarie University. It is a research-based program that incorporates the essential elements of effective reading programs identified in Australian and international reviews - phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.


Raymond Terrace Public School offers two versions of MULTILIT. The MULTILIT Reading Tutor Program provides one-one-one instruction and is used in over 700 schools around Australia. MULTILIT small group instruction is a new program run  at Raymond Terrace Public School in a research partnership with Macquarie University. The small group program has been successfully used in tutorial centres in Sydney and in indigenous communities in Cape York in Queensland. Raymond Terrace Public School is pioneering its use in a school setting.


We currently run two MultiLit groups of four students,from Year 3 to Year 5. .
