The Great Book Swap 2012

Indigenous Literacy Foundation

This year, the National Year of Reading, Collingwood College is holding a Great Book Swap to help us celebrate the National Year of Reading.

It’s very simple – and fun! Children are asked to bring to school one of their books (in good condition) so they can swap it for someone else’s. Children will make a small gold coin donation and all the money raised is donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

The Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) aims to tackle some of the disadvantage experienced by children in remote Indigenous communities, whose standards of reading and writing are generally years behind those of other Australian children. ILF provides specially-chosen books to more than 230 remote communities around Australia.

Our Great Book Swap is on: Wednesday 12th of September 2012.


Where: Collingwood College Library

Date: Wednesday 12th of September 2012

Cost: Gold coin donation

Time: Lunch time + all day booking for classes available – please see Alina for booking

Book collection: From 27th of August to 11th of September bring books to the library
