Leon, Student, Regional NSW
We have seen real change and it has been fantastic to see our students get excited about reading. I have loved having the students come in and tell me about different stories they read the night before and I have been truly impressed at how our students went taking care of their e-readers! Thank you again for giving us this amazing opportunity.
