The Year 11 VCAL class is currently conducting a Book Drive for the students at Bishop Epalle Catholic School, Honiara in the Solomon Islands.
A past Clonard College parent reached out to us, knowing that we have organised a successful Book Swap in 2021. She has deep connections in the Solomon Islands after living and working there for many years. It was explained to the students that although their schools are well resourced with educational texts, the schools often DO NOT have a library and the students DO NOT have the opportunity to simply borrow a book for the simple LOVE of reading.
Tuesday, saw the launch of the Book Drive for the Solomon Islands!
Our aim is to give the love of reading to the students. We would love to see your support in giving our neighbours in the Solomon Islands the opportunity to dive into the joy of reading!
Please consider donating your good quality, unwanted fiction books to the book drive. Books need to be suitable for secondary school aged students and can be dropped off in the donation bins located in the library, staff room and main office from 16 to 25 August.
