THE important work of assisting primary school students to enjoy reading reached a decade-long milestone at Jimboomba State School recently, attracting the support of Logan City mayor Luke Williams.
On August 3, representatives of Quota International of Jimboomba Inc were involved in the QuoCKa Reading Program at Jimboomba State School for their 10th year.
According to deputy principal Grant Pyke, the school was privileged to have the mayor’s participation in the 2017 QuoCKa program.
“Mr Smith eagerly interacted with the students and was able to display his expressive reading skills to a few of our Prep students,” he said.
“Logan City Council are keen promoters of this program and we look forward to seeing our mayor visit again shortly.”

QuoCKa Reading unites sections of the community – Quota clubs, Cops, and kids – all working together.
“Over that time, QuoCKa volunteers have worked with year 2 students and are currently working with the Prep students, creating an enjoyment for reading,” Jimboomba State School said in a statement.
“All Prep students benefit from the focused reciprocal reading time and a donation of their own book, which they can take home and read to their parents.
“All students take pride in the ownership of their book and enjoy reading with members of the community.”
According to the school, the whole student and teacher body benefits when valuable books are donated to the library, enabling the school to build on the reading resources available to all students.
The Jimboomba Quota Club said it was very thankful for the generosity of donations and continued support of this program, made by the Logan City Council and McDonald’s, Jimboomba.
