Read2Remember… We remembered AND smashed a Wild World Reading Record!
Thank you to the 1,513 schools and 350, 235 children across Australia who participated in Read2Remember 2012. Through your involvement we remembered the courage, resilience and sacrifice of our brave servicemen and women while also achieving a Wild World Reading Record. We have heard many encouraging stories from schools about how R2R is building courage and resilience in their students and communities. Thank you again to everyone for making this such a special event.

As a school that has a strong and unrelenting focus on instilling a love of reading as well as a goal of helping our students to develop skills to be resilient in their own lives, Sunbury Heights views Read2Remember as an opportunity to bind those two. – Teacher

“Her Excellency is always committed to Remembrance Day, and to children’s literature; and this book is a moving combination of the two providing a double message to young people about school bullying, and remembering our military personnel.”

” I remembered that there had been a particular bullying situatio, with some of these students, towards the end of the previous year and I quickly grabbed “The Quest for Courage” as I left for work.
