THE GREAT BOOK SWAP ON WEDS SEPTEMBER 17
To help raise funds for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation to buy books for remote indigenous communities who don’t have access to books we’re holding a Great Big Book Swap. It also means we all get to have a new book!!!
There are schools involved across Australia and the target is $100,000 to buy 10,000 books.
If every child can please bring a book to school on Weds Sept 17 that they love but no longer want and a gold coin donation, then they can be part of the book swap. By donating a gold coin, they can then swap their book for a new book that someone else has donated.
They just need to bring their books to the gym before school starts on Weds Sept. 17 and the gym will turn into a huge book swapping bookshop at lunch time.
Hopefully everyone will be involved so we can all raise money for a very important cause and have a terrific new book to take home. Check out the website for more information:
