Jessica Perry is one of many Nagambie kids whose love of reading has been helped along by the Nagambie Community Literacy Group, as members Nadene Monger and Chris Bunton (Nagambie Pre-School and Childcare Centre), Rob French (Nagambie Primary School), Vivienne Moore (group co-ordinator), Leo Jones (St Joseph's School), Catherine Langdon (Nagambie Library) and Jo Perry (Pre-school and Childcare Centre) celebrate another award.

The Nagambie Community Literacy Group is used to awards and last week it was presented with $30000 thanks to winning a NAB Schools First impact award — details were in last week’s Telegraph.

The partnership between Nagambie and St Joseph’s Primary Schools, the Nagambie Pre-school and Childcare Centre, Nagambie Playgroup and the library continues to go from strength to strength.

Having won the Bailieu Myer Rural Education Leadership Award earlier this year, it offers one major activity a year for all children, staff professional development activities at both schools and a homework club for Year 3-12 students on Wednesday afternoons at the Nagambie Library.

Future plans include regular library visits for school and kinder children and parent literacy education — or how to best teach your kids to read.
