Thank you to the Ngati Whakaue Endowment Grant for the grant of $13,000 to ‘boost our oral literacy in reading and writing’. This grant enables us to purchase the Quick60 Alphabet books and the Factual texts Set 2 (we bought Set 1 this year), storage for these sets and employ a teacher aide to run these programmes next year. We are also able to purchase sets of Lego for our Bricks Club. We are beyond grateful for this grant and the benefits it will bring for our tamariki.
