"Of all the awards, the ones that kids choose themselves always mean the most. But they are also a great way to show kids that what THEY love is important." Jackie French

Our boys who attended were so excited and came back to school full of enthusiasm which they shared with the other boys in their classes. It was highlighted again yesterday how important and worthwhile organisations like KOALA are for the promotion of reading and literature for children. - Joanne Barnes, Librarian, Wyvern House
