Free Reading packs for Kindergarten students
All Western Australian schools and community kindergartens are invited to participate in the Better Beginnings kindergarten program, in which free reading packs are provided to every kindergarten-aged child to take home. Schools are required to register for the program each year, and teachers can do this on the Better Beginnings website. The reading packs will then be provided to the school by the local public library.
This year Capel Library staff have supplied a total of 247 reading packs to all schools within the Shire of Capel. Staff have also made presentations at most of the Kindergartens.
These packs are proudly sponsored by Government of Western Australia; State Library of WA; Rio Tinto and Shire of Capel.
