In line with our key school value of ‘Benefitting others’, our focus this week is "Making a Difference". We are organising our first ever Book Drive for Years 3 – 6 students to support the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation (ALF).
The book drive will commence on Monday, 16 October and end on Friday, 27 October. Each student is asked to bring in a book either new or used. As a school, we are excited that our students can make a difference in the lives of those less fortunate by gifting them a resource the indigenous communities can benefit from.
Please pass your book to your child’s classroom teacher between the above dates. All collected books need to be suitable for children from 0 to 16 years of age. The books will be dropped off to the collection centre in the city before 31 October 2017.
Please note that the following guidelines provided by the ALF need to be followed:
