Car-load of books for flooded school
Published on 13 February, 2013
CQUniversity has donated several cartons full of educational books to the recently flooded Bundaberg East State School, to help the school get back on its feet.
The books came from a collection at the University's Noosa Campus, where Professor Mike Horsley collects them as founder and chief judge for the Australian Awards for Excellence in Educational Publishing.
Principal Doug Ambrose says these donated books will be used to replace teacher resource materials that were destroyed in the recent flood.
Noosa Campus also donated clothes and other useful items for the flooded residents of Bundaberg. Donated items included art and craft supplies, games and DVDs.
