Duffy Books – Role Model Assembly

On Friday, 29th March 2019, Gary and Brenda Bendall, Paul Henriques and Angela Wadham attended the Role Model Assembly at Glen Taylor School, Glendowie, on behalf of the church, and assisted in the Duffy presentation of books to pupils. It was a pleasure to be part of this school event, and our Church was thanked by students for our sponsorship.

The Duffy Role Model for this Assembly was Niva Retimanu, a dynamic and engaging Radio Announcer, who had a great rapport with the pupils. She led the children with the Duffy Motto – “It’s cool to read; and it’s cool to achieve”. Gary helped Niva present the books to each of the 13 classrooms.

There are currently 243 students at Glen Taylor Primary, and we felt privileged to represent our Church there. We believe the Duffy Books in Homes programme is a successful and pro-active way to foster a love of reading, learning and achieving, Visiting the school always reminds us of how well this programme fits with our 7 Unitarian Principles.
