Deniliquin TAFE students were encouraging the community to get reading as part of National Skills Week last week.
The students, who are completing Certificate I – Access to Work and Training, gave away books of all genres at the Cressy St kiosk in Deni on Thursday.
Relieving Head Teacher of Education Pathways Louise Graham said every kind of book imaginable was on offer.
‘‘We had romance, horror, comedy, crime, animals, thriller, gardening, cooking and action along with children’s books and magazines.
‘‘Our book giveaway was designed to assist all members of our community, from book worms to people who don’t often get an opportunity to read or access books.’’
She said the planning and organising of the event had also been a significant skills development opportunity for the students.
‘‘It has developed their communication, team work, problem solving, planning, self-management and organisational skills.
‘‘These skills will be significant contributors to their resumes and will assist with their aim to gain employment.
‘‘This not only benefits our local community, but transforms students’ identities and self-perception as a worker of worth and achievement.
‘‘We feel very proud of their achievements.’’
