Benjamin McGregor (4 years old), who attends Pre-Kindergarten at Canberra Grammar Boys Northside Campus, has donated his pocket money saved up over the last two months to Buk bilong Pikinini. Benjamin donated $10.80, which he presented to Anne-Sophie while expressing his desire for Buk bilong Pikinini to purchase a good book for the children of Papua New Guinea. BbP would like to thank Benjamin for this generous gesture and hope that others will feel inspired by such a young entrepreneur!
Anne-Sophie and Tania Nugent (who is currently producing a documentary for BbP) were at the CGS Northside campus to film and conduct interviews with Jennifer Thompson, the Director of Early Childhood at CGS, and children from Year Two. The Canberra Grammar Boys School community has been donating more than 3000 books over the last 3 years and have also donated funds to BbP. Anne-Sophie has been doing regular presentations at the school to try to bring the plight of PNG children to some of the more fortunate children in Australia.
