The 4 volunteers who attend Wellacre Boys Academy, Flixton are all involved in helping year 9 boys, who are slow readers, to improve with GCSE’s on the horizon. We work with the boys in the pleasant, recently refurbished library where the librarian, Louise is most helpful particularly when boys, need to be reminded to attend, bearing in mind that these are 13 to 14 year olds!
We have been told that so far there has been a general improvement in reading amongst the boys who do attend. One boy who has now completed his sessions said that his confidence had improved and he understood that taking his time to understand fully what he was reading, would help him generally and more specifically when confronted with exam questions.

Sue Mosco used the theme of Together Everyone Achieves More – ‘T.E.A.M.’ to emphasize the achievements of Intergen-Trafford this year. We are now involved in more schools, making a difference to young learners through supporting reading, playing games, sewing, knitting, gardening, and mentoring.
