Why support the My Life Story Appeal?
My Life Story Program is a school community based writing project for Kindy to Year 7. Each child is supported to tell their story through a unique, curriculum-aligned literacy program and receives a digital and printed version of their own 12 page book.
In 2019, My Life Story aims to support 10,000 rural students to tell and share their story.
These books provide the opportunity to share and learn about country life and create an instant library for rural schools. These stories are then swapped and shared between country and city schools to build awareness of drought affected Australia and shares the grit, tenacity and reality of day to day life.
In addition to literacy skills, your company's support enables students to receive wrap around specialist health services by leading children's charity, Royal Far West. This includes support for anxiety, stress, speech, learning and behaviour. One in three young children in rural and remote Australia have significant developmental health issues which impacts their ability to understand, communicate and participate in school.
