Great Book Swap on national Indigenous Literacy Day Wednesday 2 September.
09 Aug 2015
This year our school is supporting the work of the Indigenous Literacy Foundation by holding a Great Book Swap on national Indigenous Literacy Day Wednesday 2 September.
To take part students need to bring along a book that they are happy to swap with another student and a gold coin donation to choose a "new" book.
Students are encouraged to bring books in to Mr Stewart and the Library before the day, so search your shelves and help us support Indigenous Literacy.
The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) works to put books into the hands of children and families in remote Indigenous communities across Australia. In the lifetime of the project, with the support of many people and organisations including schools, they have sent more than 120,000 new, high quality books to over 230 remote communities. The ILF also runs an early literacy project called Book Buzz, which puts board books into the hands of babies, toddlers and their families. The Foundation has published and funded more than 40 community books, some of which are translated into first language. Please help us support their work!
