This has been a wonderful year for the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation. New tutoring and homework groups have been established (or are about to be established) in Bairnsdale, Hamilton, Northern suburbs of Melbourne (Thornbury) and in Docklands in the city. We also have the wonderful classes run by Sue Bacon at Bacchus Marsh, our very successful after school class at Melton and our long-established classes based in Ballarat.
We are pleased to keep our Books for Learning program in full swing and next year we are also looking to commission and publish a whole new series of books to join our well established Healthy Living series.
Another important development is the Aboriginal Language Supplement to our Digital Literacy Hub. This will help not only support duel language students in Northern Australia, but will play a significant role in preserving indigenous language and culture.
None of these developments would be possible without the help of our wonderful supporters. To all our supporters and our staff and our friends, we wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year.
