Please keep the books coming for the school
The Port Douglas State School and the P&C Assoc would like to thank the following amazing local businesses that have either donated cash or pledged the $$ donation value of new books to the tune of over $2300 so far, to our ‘I Love My Library’ Book Month at PDSS – and the donations are still rolling in! Thanks goes to: The Reef Marina, Sailaway, Kathie Jones, Mossman Bakery/Port Pies, Bolt Burchill Tranter Lawyers, Newsport, Reef Sprinter, On Deck Catering, Bioquest Studios, Whileaway, NQ Homes, Port Douglas Magazine & Port Douglas Sailmakers.
Massive thanks to school parent Jenny Edmondson, for collating book lists and approaching business folk around Port Douglas asking them to support our school library! We live in such an awesome community.
Our student Read-a-Thon raised around $530 with the highest fundraiser from each class receiving their donated gift vouchers from Whileaway on Monday. Well done to those kids who participated.
We have also received almost 150 new and second hand books in our dropoff boxes donated from students, families and members of the wider community!
