A few words from our President...
Here we are, four years after the introduction of Hands Up 4 Kids and we now have 15 partner Primary Schools and YOU – one of the VIP’s who make up the 150-strong team of fabulous volunteer readers! What a difference we are all making in helping young kids gain the knowledge and skills to read confidently! HU4K received The Premier’s Australia Day Active Citizenship Award for a community group or event - “Local Government recognising local achievement” states “Presented to Hands Up 4 Kids for fostering Australian pride and spirit through active citizenship and outstanding contribution to community”. In accepting these certificates we proudly acknowledged that the awards applied to every one of our volunteers. Special thanks to the Lions Club of Australind who nominated HU4K for this award in the Harvey Shire. Thanks to all of you for your ongoing support and commitment.
