Local initiative
As you may recall, each month we are profiling some of the Beyond the Bell work taking place on the ground.  This month the focus is on some work being undertaken in the Southern Grampians area.
The Growing Greater Readers program aims to increase the rate of early childhood exposure to reading in the Greater Hamilton region and to reduce the high rate of local children who are entering formalised education with low literacy skills and low or no exposure to books or reading.
There are three components to this program:

1. Little Libraries- Donated children’s books are placed into a series of book boxes located in public venues.  Families are encouraged to ‘take a book and leave a book’.

2. Community Reading Heroes – volunteers are trained as ‘reading champions’ and deployed in early childhood centres, kinders and primary schools.

3. Let’s Read -  Book packs and reading support to families with children aged 0-4 years.
Further information about this program is available from Anne Murphy, Executive Officer, Glenelg & Southern Grampians Local Learning and Employment Network,
