Zonta Club of Bunbury donates books on International Literacy Day
On International Literacy Day, Chris Aldis and Pat Hollier from the Zonta Club of Bunbury, Australia, visited Djidi Djidi School to read a book to pre-primary children. The book, called "RESPECT," was written by Aunty Fay Muir and Sue Lawson and illustrated by Lisa Kennedy. The story teaches respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The children responded well, quickly interacted with this book and were very excited to learn that hard copies of the book would be given to them at the end of the school day.
The club's reading and gifting of the book serve to acknowledge and celebrate International Literacy Day as an annual activity. This year's visit to the school was a gratifying and worthwhile cultural experience.
