I am the Reading Champion Coordinator for the Growing Greater Readers Program in the Shire of Southern Grampians.
We used NSS this year to try to promote reading across the Shire in schools, kinder, daycare centres, aged care facilities etc. We encouraged organisations to register and offered them a copy of the book if they did so. We had a wonderful response and we are delighted by the response and cooperation we have received.
I am thrilled knowing that next year all those who registered this year will be informed about the event and so it will be self sustaining. We had young people in Aged Care Facilities reading the story to the elderly as I felt that this story would resonate with the elderly as well.
Thank you for this initiative. Everything that promotes the value of reading is invaluable.
