Books in homes

Last week I went to St Brendan's School to read There Was an Old Sailor as a preface to presenting bags of books to Grade 1 & 2 students. It was all part of the wonderful Books in Homes project, in this instance supported by funds from a Melbourne legal firm. The children were so enthusiastic and full of beans, as were their teachers. It was a delight to be there and to be part of it.

After the presentation, the children read from their new books.

And then there was pizza!

Hi there Claire,

Gemma here, from Ford St.
So great to see kids being encouraged to read and really nice to hear they are enthusiastic about it!
