Clyde Quay Primary School - FUND OUR FUTURE READERS Fundraiser for Literacy, Library and Reading Support Services for 2021.

Main image

In 2021 we are facing a significant operating loss, unless we manage to raise extra funds. If we do not manage to raise extra funds, then 2021 will mean significant cut backs in learning resources.

Our children will lose vital literacy assistance, including:

- Loss of teacher aide hours (1 FTE's worth)

- 50% drop in language tuition

- Reduced library hours

- No new library books

- Less Reading Recovery support

With your help its not too late to fund the 2021 shortfall we are aiming to raise $60,000.00 Please donate now:

$5,000 could fund a teacher salary aid for several weeks;

$1,000 would help keep the library open;

$100 provides new reading resources for the classroom;

$50 can buy a full session of vital one on one reading support for a struggling child;

$20 can buy a new library books that countless children can enjoy;

$10 can fund a portion of a reading recovery support session; and

$5 can buy time in a language tuition class.

At a time of year when many of us give and receive many presents, that if we are honest, go to waste. Why not give our children the enduring gift of literacy?

Every little bit helps!

Use of funds
