Thank you to everyone who purchased something from our Scholastic Book fair last week! We made a massive $15,697 in total sales.

The commission from these sales allows us to donate $2000 to the Room to Read organisation, a $500 box of toys and books for Mudgeeraba Special School, and $1,200 worth of Scholastic books for our own Junior library collection.

We are so proud to be able to support Room to Read. They are a non-profit organisation dedicated to improving the literacy of children in developing countries, with a particular emphasis on girls’ education. So far, they have helped over 12 million children worldwide learn to read and write, which in turn gives them the opportunity to break the poverty cycle. Our $2000 is enough to educate almost 30 children for a whole year, so thank you, Somerset.

Any orders placed at the Fair will be filled and delivered directly to your child’s class as soon as they arrive, probably next week.
