Our annual Book Fair in Week 5 was, as always a great success. We raised enough funds to donate $2,300 cash to Tristan Banck’s Room to Read charity which will use the funds to improve the education outcomes of children in poorer countries, with a focus on girls’ education.
Closer to home, we were also able to purchase around $800 worth of games, toys, puzzles and big books for Mudgeeraba Special School.
Our gifts to ‘Mudgee’ were delivered on behalf of the Junior School by Year 8 students when they visited last Thursday 1 September. All the staff and students were very grateful and surprised by the gifts.
Thank you to all the Somerset families who support our Book Fair. Your generosity helps us to ‘pay it forward’ in the best possible ways!
