Introducing Paint the Town REaD Bunbury & Surrounds

News

Investing In Our Youth is excited to bring Paint the Town REaD to Bunbury and surroundings areas.

This project commenced in March 2020 with funding from Lottery West. It will run alongside Paint the Cape REaD which has been successfully established in the Dunsborough, Vasse and Busselton areas. Paint the Town REaD Bunbury and Beyond will be overseen by a local committee and is seeking to work with three communities in the area.

Paint the Town REaD is a nation wide movement to promote the importance of early literacy. It uses a whole of community approach encouraging everyone to come on board to talk, read, sing, rhyme, draw and play with children every day from birth. It is based on research that shows that the early years are crucial in nurturing parent and child attachment, supporting healthy brain development, being school ready and fostering long term health and well being.

If you would like to be a part of this exciting initiative promoting early literacy please get in touch – we would love to hear from you.
