Scholastic Australia Helps Schools Affected by Recent Natural Disasters

SCHOLASTIC AUSTRALIA gives $50,000 in books to cyclone and flood-damaged schools.

To support the schools that have been affected by cyclone Debbie and the recent floods in Northern NSW, Scholastic Australia – through Australian Standing Orders, Scholastic Book Clubs, Scholastic Book Fairs and Scholastic Education – is providing over $50,000 in books to help replenish school and classroom libraries.

The team from Scholastic Australia has been making personal contact with teachers and librarians in the schools affected and provided book lists from which they are able to select books and other products.

Our thoughts continue to be with all of the teachers, students and school communities impacted by these recent tragic events. Scholastic is proud to be working directly with the Australian Primary Principals Association to assist schools, teachers, students and parents as they begin to rebuild.

All of us at Scholastic Australia and APPA hope this gift of reading will lighten the pain caused by the recent disasters and bring many hours of pleasure to schools and students.
