The Great Book Swap – The Indigenous Literacy Project

This week we will be gathering books that are donated by the students and having a book swap to raise funds for

The Great Book Swap.


Students will bring in books that are no longer using from home and ‘purchase’ a pre-loved book that someone else has donated. Students then give a gold coin and select a book from the available books.

Tomorrow Indigenous Literacy Day is celebrated so hopefully we can add to the celebrations with the money that we raise.

Check out The Indigenous Literacy Project site.

Stay tuned for updates soon.
