Please keep the books com­ing for the school

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - OPINION -

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!

Thankyou all!
