Schools programs

17 February 2020

Watch a short video of the launch of our Schools programs in the Pauline Gandel Children's Quarter and see how thrilled the Year 1 and 2 students from Kilsyth Primary felt to be part of it!

Made possible by a $2 million donation from Gandel Foundation, our Schools programs address Australia's falling literacy rates by fostering a love of reading from a young age.

The program is open to all students, and schools with ICSEA rankings below 1000 may be eligible for funded bus travel to attend Story talks: meet the author, Primary research skills workshop and Create your own book workshop.
