Books for Kinder
This program was launched in 2005 as an addendum to the very successful “Books for Babies” program, where each year the club presented kinder students at Rocherlea and Mayfield Primary Schools with a high quality book to take home to continue to enjoy reading.
The aim in presenting students with their very own book is to encourage literacy in children and build a lifelong love of books. Projects such as “Books for Kinder” demonstrate that so much can be achieved with not a lot of effort. A simple idea can improve the lives of others and make a real difference.
In 2015 Rocherlea and Mayfield Primary Schools amalgamated as East Tamar Primary School and our association stalled. At the same time, a new partnership was formed with the Waverley Primary School where our Community Services Director is working with teachers to develop a new program to gain maximum benefit from the basis of this program.
