Wyndham is the oldest town in the Kimberley and northernmost settlement in Western Australia. Over the past six years, our Foundation has supplied books to organisations in Wyndham and has made field visits to Wyndham Public School.
ILF delivered three packs of books to Wyndham Early Learning Activity Community Centre (WELA) last year. Jane Parker, WELA Manager, says that there are few books in family homes and the books they receive from our Foundation play a very important part in the community centre programs.
“The children, parents and other community members love when there are new books and we all enjoy our old favourites. If we did not get ILF books we would not have new books to enjoy,” said Jane.
“Parents, carers, elders and brothers and sisters are reading to their younger ones. It’s great to see a big mob of children sitting around one older person who is reading to them. It also helps with bonding and attachment with the little ones. It’s a fantastic resource.
