The Great Book Swap
On Wednesday 11 September the Primary students will be participating in The Great Book Swap to celebrate Indigenous Literacy Day, which takes place on September 4. The Book Swap is very simple - and fun! Before the actual day, each girl is asked to bring in a favourite book and put it in the special box in her classroom. On the day, the girls will visit the library with their class, where their pre-loved books will be displayed, and the girls can then choose a "new" book they would like to keep.

Each girl is asked to bring in a gold coin (or more) which will be donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. All the money raised will provide culturally relevant books and resources for Indigenous children living in remote communities.

Please encourage your daughter to choose a book to bring to swap that is in very good condition, that she feels other girls her age will enjoy and that she is happy to give away. Please ensure it is a book that she would be happy to receive in relation to its condition and reading age. Girls are encouraged to bring in their book as soon as possible.

We think this is a lovely opportunity to both encourage reading in our own school and to help others in the wider community.
