Last week on Friday, we held a great Book Swap fundraiser for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, which raised $1,037.00!
This is connected to a visit to our school by Andy Griffiths, who will come on Friday 28th August. In the meantime our students will be pre-ordering his new book, with 10% of each sale also going to the ILF, and we are selling bookmarks for 50 cents to add to the donation.
The timing of Aboriginal Children’s Day could not be better, and all this week, in the library, we will be viewing some of the videos on ABC Splash featuring Indigenous children, and reading stories with Indigenous Australian main characters. That might sound a bit tame, but we are still recovering from our MASSIVE books swap!
