To the Duffy Books in Homes Team

A big thank you for your continued support by way of free books for all our children. We had a fun assembly with our Duffy Books HERO Adrian ‘Showtime’ Boyd earlier this week.  The children and staff were thoroughly entertained by him. We really appreciate the time and effort everyone puts into the running of this special programme.

Thanks again from all of us

From the Office - Linda Vagana

Reflecting on term one 2018, the amazing work of our Duffy schools, teachers and co-ordinators come to mind.  Term One introduced our book orders change over to online class orders only.  It was certainly a lot of communication and support from our office during the order process and we just want to congratulate our schools and Duffy Co-ordinators for assisting in this change-over and ensuring all kids in your school community received their books.

Over 100,000 children throughout New Zealand in more than 800 of our schools and Early Childhood Centres have received two books each.  Our team in the office were fortunate to be part of the many book offer assemblies happening around the country plus, meeting up with our generous funding partners and inspirational role models.  Some of our role models and funding partners are featured below in this newsletter.

Term two started with the amazing generosity from Mazda Foundation and FleetPartners renewing our Duffy Theatre partnership and providing brand new vehicles.  Thank you for the support, our actors are certainly enjoying the rides.

Many thanks to all our super generous supporters and partners making it possible for every school and ECE centre presenting the gift of books throughout the homes in our communities.

Happy Reading!
