This was one of the special experiences as an author. The privilege of going to this small inner city school in the heart of the Housing Commission was inspiring.
The amazing principal Mr Moran has brought community, teachers, children together in an environment of learning and love. Every child was celebrated. Every teacher was celebrated. Every community supporter was celebrated.
Police officers, the pastor from the local Baptist Church, Head of Distance Education, Macquarie Bank – everyone from local people to corporates were there contibuting to these young people’s future.
As a role model author for Books in Homes, I had the pleasure of handing out books to the children so that reading would be part of their lives.
As an Ambassador for the National Year of Reading, I had the opportunity to share books. It was my pleasure to donate a class set of ‘I AM JACK’ to the school.
Thankyou Plunkett Street Public School.
