"The ARROW Phase 11 Programme continues at the school during this current academic year (2019/2020).The teachers/tutors are very dedicated and are supported by their colleagues. Classes at our school are held twice weekly, each teacher having one hour per day with her five students.


Apart from achieving academic success, our students also feel a sense of pride and experience an increase in their self-esteem. We look forward to having this ARROW programme run its full course of three years and possibly beyond."

"We the principal, staff, students and parents of the Mayaro Government Primary School wish to thank you and your foundation for embracing our school in Phase II of the ARROW programme. Phase I has  shown to be a remarkable success as printed out in a previous letter.


The students who participated in  this initial programme continue to reap the rewards as they can cope better with reading throughout  the school’s curriculum."

Principal Primary (Ag)

"It has improved student’s vocalisation skills, confidence to talk, and share their answers and ideas in class as well as the public. Most of the students who were involved in the programme are now reading at their current class level.

There has also been an improvement in students’ reading fluency.

 I have also noticed a reduction of inappropriate behavior of some students who are a part of the programme and I believe it is because of their level of success in reading.  Feedback from parents has also been very positive.  Parents are reporting that their sons have a renewed interest in doing homework and class work."

Asha Ramdass

Standard Four Teacher

"I am an A.R.R.O.W. trained tutor and the programme was implemented into the school in November of 2017. I have been actively involved working with the students of the standard four department on the A.R.R.O.W. programme. Based on the pre and post assessment conducted there was definitely improvement noticed, all students who participated in the programme have showed improvement which has been noticed within the classroom activities as well.


Reading and spelling have now become a topic of interest as the students actively participate in the exercises which was a challenge for most of them before. I look forward to continue working on the programme with the standard four department to further improve our literacy standard."



Ms Carrington

Special Needs Education Teacher

"There is one student who's story I would like to share. This young boy who is now 8 years of age was diagnosed at the age of 5 with ADHD and was kept back last academic year to repeat the grade level. He has since undergone the A.R.R.O.W. Programme for five block sessions from November 2016 to March of 2017.This student showed a marked and sustained improvement in reading, spelling, language and general concentration after these sessions.


 His parents are extremely grateful for the intervention and have pledged to assist the school in any way they can. His parents have also reported that at home he is now very keen to read not only digital stories on his iPad but he also reads books that they have purchased for him."

Ms. Vashti Kanju

Infants Year 2

"Working on the A.R.R.O.W. programme with the students has been a great experience for me. I have noticed the students adapt to a new concept of learning which they enjoy. Each student showed remarkable improvement after participating on the ARROW programme.


The students were anxious to work on the computer, one student in particular was a bit shy as she has never been exposed to using the computer, however once engaged on the programme her confidence improved drastically and she became a lot more outspoken. Every single student showed great improvement which has fostered into the classroom environment. The second group of students have been assessed and will begin in the new term. I look forward to continuous improvement throughout the school, using the ARROW programme."

Nelson Street Boys R.C. Primary

"My son participated in the ARROW programme and improvement was noticed in the areas of reading, spelling, and vocabulary. His writing skills got much better than it was and he became a lot more confident in himself with his school work. Compared to before, he is actually sounding out his letters and forming words on his own."


Crystal Marcellin

Parent of child from

Nelson Street Boys R.C. Primary

"The ARROW programme assisted my son with his reading and spelling.  After being involved with the programme he began to read more fluently, sound out his letter sounds and pronounce his words.  He is a lot more confident with reading and is not as shy or ashamed to read."

Maria Hazel

Parent of child from

Nelson Street Boys R.C. Primary

"As a mother I have noticed great improvement in [my son]. Since he has been on the A.R.R.O.W. programme, his ability to read has improved. He is now reading and spelling much better than he was previously. Joshua has shown greater willingness to do his work and his attitude towards going to school and his school work has changed."



Ms Suzanne Brice

"I have noticed remarkable improvement also with the standard five (5) students who participated on the A.R.R.O.W. programme and I have come to the conclusion that the A.R.R.O.W. programme is remarkable and provides the students with a balanced forum to improve on themselves holistically. A.R.R.O.W. helps the students with their reading, writing, spelling concentration self-esteem confidence and much more. This programme is one I would recommend to anyone and would love to see the programme continue in the school so that the teachers can be trained for Phase II so that students can continue to  progress."

Shalima Chowtee

"The students who participated in the A.R.R.O.W. programme over the 8-10 hour period showed improvement in both reading and spelling. One student in particular whose attendance on the programme was consistent showed remarkable improvement after completing his sessions. Other students who struggled with their phonics and basic reading also showed improvement and are now able to read at a basic level.

After placing my below grade student on the ARROW program, I discovered he had a visual problem. He had difficulty seeing the words on the screen. The A.R.R.O.W. Self- Voice assisted him tremendously.  With the assistance of the tutor’s voice and self-voice he was able to improve his reading level by five months.


I would recommend the ARROW programme to other schools and also to be used as the intervention programme for students performing below grade level in the language arts area."
