Zoo joins Duffy Books in Homes

calendar iconPosted 24 September 2019

Zoo education team leader Ken Millwood has been getting out to Waikato schools this month reading stories and giving away books as a Duffy Books in Homes role model. 


The Duffy Books in Homes programme was developed by Author Alan Duff with the purpose of improving literacy and securing a better future for the upcoming generation of NZ children. Now in it's 25th year, over 12 million books have been distributed. Ka mau te wehi (that's awesome!).

Hamilton Zoo has jumped on board to help promote the Duffy Books in Homes message 'It's cool to read and cool to achieve'.

Ken is visiting nine Waikato schools with over 1,300 students throughout the month.
