Next week our students and staff will be participating in the 2017 Great Book Swap. This event celebrates reading whilst also raising money for remote communities. We have been sourcing a plethora of books for the event. Students and staff can swap a favourite book in exchange for another, or by a gold coin donation. How much can we raise?
The Great Book Swap is a win-win. Not only does it help raise money to improve literacy levels in remote communities, but the excitement and fun that a book swap generates will help improve literacy levels in your community or organisation as well!

We were quite horrified to learn that only 25% of Aboriginal students in very remote areas are at the minimum reading standard in comparison to 90% of non-Aboriginal students. We feel that we can help lift literacy levels. We will make a difference. All proceeds from our Great Book Swap will be donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.
