The Great Book Swap

Wednesday, September 13, 2023

Cedar Campus hosted The Great Book Swap on Wednesday, 6 September as part of Indigenous Literacy Day. Held each year to raise money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation, The Great Book Swap is an opportunity for students to swap their much-loved books from home, for books brought in by other students. By making a gold coin donation, the Indigenous Literacy Foundation can buy new books for children in remote Australian communities so they may have the best chances to develop important reading skills and a lifelong love of reading.

This year students swapped an impressive 1117 books and raised $912.90. Congratulations to Miss Doumit and Year 1B for raising the most money ($122), and Miss Tina and Year 4A for swapping the most books (272). Each class receives a perpetual trophy to keep in their classroom to commemorate their commitment to such a worthwhile cause.

Special thanks to Manisha Kaushik, Pascale Kanati and Theresa Essey for setting up and running The Great Book Swap.
