10 students from TACAPS participated in the 2017 Child Writes Program run by Emma Mactaggart which helps students with writing, illustrating and publishing their very own books.
As a result, 10 beautiful and original books have been donated to the Toowoomba Hospital paediatric unit to give sick kids something to read.
Head of Preparatory Years at TACAPS, Jason Locke, said the students thoroughly enjoyed being involved with the Child Writes Program and were very excited to be able to donate their creations to help bring some joy to sick kids in the Toowoomba Hospital.
“The Child Writes Program is a great way for students to test their writing skills and to show their creative side through illustrating their stories,” Mr Locke said.
“Being able to donate the books to the Toowoomba Hospital paediatric unit via the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation also allowed the students to make a contribution to the community and see how their hard work can make an impact for sick kids.”
Toowoomba Hospital Foundation CEO Alison Kennedy said the sick kids would benefit greatly from the beautiful books that have been donated.
“We are extremely lucky to be the recipients of these beautiful books that the TACAPS students worked so hard to create and we know that they will make a difference for our littlest patients.”
