Shtepi House Make a Difference Week, run by the House Leaders, aimed to raise awareness about world literacy, equality in education for all and to celebrate the love of books and reading. Our House Charity ‘Room to Read’ who support and promote children’s literacy in Asia and Africa, will use the money we raised to continue to create local language reading materials, teacher training and girls’ education programs throughout the world.
Thank you to all of the students, parents and our whole school family for the generous donations. This year we collected $10,432.90
A spectacular effort, considering we only had Year 7 – 10 in school.
