During Book Week the Junior Library held a book sale for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Many parents and friends from the Grammar Community donated books they no longer needed and then a sale proceeded over 3 days during recess and lunch-time. With such support the community has raised $400.00 to pass on to the Foundation. Importantly, our children have learned about the difference access to education means and how being literate is not something we should take for granted.
