The Cairns School of Distance Education have kindly donated over 32 boxes of resources to Apunipima Cape York Health Council to distribute throughout Cape York communities as a part of the their “Free Little Library” initiative.
The resources will be an engagement tool to interact with kids in the Cape to promote the important of early literacy.
Apunipima Team Leader Amanda Wilson is excited about the connections kids will make with these books, saying “Literacy is a strong predictor of health outcomes and as a health organisation we recognise the importance of developing a love of reading in the early years to promote better literacy and health later in life. This generous donation of educational resources will be much appreciated by families in Cape York.”
Cairns School of Distance Education presented resources to Apunipima Cape York Health Council as part of the school’s Little Free Library Project.
Principal, Andrew Oliver, said, “Our school’s motto of ‘Global Learning’ and important community partnerships link us with learning communities near and far.
Together, Cairns School of Distance Education and Apunipima are proudly promoting literacy through valuable reading opportunities.”
These boxes contain a variety of educational books, games and puzzles for children of all ages.
