Reconciliation Queensland is pleased to inform our members and supporters that the books collected at our Australia Day event this year and donated to schools in the Torres Strait Islands have arrived at their destination!

John Duus, Head of Campus at Tagai Secondary Campus Thursday Island (known locally as Waybeni Koey Ngurpay Mudh), wrote to notify us of their safe arrival.

“Please find attached some photos from our campus using the books your team donated. Much appreciated and thank you for your kind donation,” Mr Duus said.

“Reading is a key priority for us and our students enjoyed opening the box (just like Christmas) but also its beautiful contents. Please thank your sponsors and sorry for the delay in getting back to you,” he said.
