$20,000 donated to AFFLIP's PD Literacy Flagship Program
AFFLIP has received a $20,000 grant from the Magic Libraries Foundation based in Geneva to kick start the implementation of The Guided Reading strategy.
AFFLIP aims to help teachers from K to Grade 6 to provide reading experiences which ensure that all children have the attitudes, information and strategies that will help them to read a range of texts successfully. This involves the provision of leveled reading materials as books and laminated passages.
Fundraising dinner a huge success
The major AFFLIP fundraiser for this year was held on Friday 12th February with 161 AFFLIP members and guests gathered at the Adelaide Pavilion, Veale Gardens to raise funds to support the Foundation's flagship programs. We were delighted with the outstanding attendance given the uncertainties of these COVID times and in fact there were a further five guests who could not attend at the last minute given the imposition of travel restrictions.
