CEO's Report
Dear friends,

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.
Dr Tony Cree,

Homework Club Updates
(Pictured above: Tutors and volunteers at Bacchus Marsh)

With the end of the year approaching our Homework Clubs have all wound up for 2016.

Bacchus Marsh is a great example of the community aspect of these Homework Clubs. Now in its 3rd year, their Christmas breakup was held on the 16th and attended by Mrs Claus who brought an early Christmas present for each of the students.

This year, we will be saying goodbye to tutor, Eva (pictured 2nd from the left), who will be taking up a new position in Broome, WA. Eva has been very popular with staff and students alike and will most definitely be missed from Tuesday afternoon classes.
