Many thanks to our gorgeous Rosie for her donation of books, CDs and DVDs to the Bookstore. Rosie has also crafted a colourful Tutenkhammen for our display of Egyptian books.
|Dictionary 4 Life|
Vocational Committee Project. Dictionary for Life (illustrated dictionary). Mar 21, 2011 Albert Park rotarian Vicki Teschke presented grade 3 & 4 students at Port Melb Primary School with the Usborne Illustrated Dictionary. Inside the front cover the club had personalised the dictionaries with the students names with a name plate in the front showing they are from the RCAP together with a modified 4 way test for children. The aim was to improve literacy in an interesting/colourful/fun format. More photo's of this dictionary are available from the webpage.
