Indigenous Literacy Foundation

Barrenjoey Montessori Book Fair 9-12

Only 34% of Indigenous Year 5 students in very remote areas are at or above national minimum reading standards, compared to 95% for non-Indigenous students in major cities, according to the2017 National Assessment Program for Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN).


The situation is improving but there is still a long way to go and the challenges are immense.


Apart from the historical, health, social, and educational disadvantage issues, many remote communities don’t have many, if any, books. Most of the remote communities that we work with report there are fewer than five books in family homes.


Our approach to raising literacy levels starts at a community level with Book Supply. Appropriate quality books are gifted to organisations operating in remote communities.


Proceeds from our Book Fair are going towards supporting ILF's invaluable work. Thank you for your support
