Good Samaritan Catholic College Hinchinbrook has filled their library with avid readers raising funds for world literacy.
Students have been sponsored per page or by a single donation in a readathon raising funds for “Room to Read”, which supports literacy programs for children in Africa and Asia and helps girls in the developing world finish school.
One student raised $170 before the readathon began.
As well as supporting others, Mr Lozelle said there are a lot of students with English as a second language.
“We’re hoping to get more students passionate about reading,” he said.
