Catholic school families to benefit from MultiLit partnership

February 29, 2024

MultiLit and Catholic School Parents Australia (CSPA) are proud to announce a new partnership that will see Catholic School families receive discounted access to literacy assessments.

CSPA is the national, peak body for the parents/carers of the 804,618 children and young people in Australia’s 1,760 Catholic schools. One in every five Australian students is educated in a Catholic school.

Over the past 25 years, MultiLit has assisted thousands of students across Australia, New Zealand, and Asia. MultiLit programs are grounded in scientific evidence-based best practice.

Commencing in 2024, the one-year partnership will assist Catholic school families to access leading-edge literacy programs to support their children’s learning.

Parents of children attending Catholic schools will also benefit by receiving 50 per cent off the cost of literacy assessments.

“We’re delighted to welcome MultiLit to the CSPA family and look forward to working with them for the benefit of over 800,000 children attending Catholic schools in Australia,” said CSPA Chair Andrea Obeyesekere.

“With the recent focus on the literacy standards in Australia’s education system, this partnership reiterates the importance of high-quality, research-based literacy programs so that our school children are supported through their learning journey.”

MultiLit General Manager of Literacy Services, Andy Russell, said the partnership was a natural fit, with both organisations dedicated to improving education outcomes for Australian children.

“The CSPA’s important work in parent engagement really spoke to us as we also see parents as vital when it comes to helping to improve students’ literacy and overall educational achievement,” Mr Russell said.

“We look forward to this partnership benefiting the many children and families who are supported by CSPA.’’
