The latest on project action groups, Mem Fox visits Logan and more!



What an exciting month May was, as we welcomed beloved children’s author Mem Fox to Logan in celebration of Under 8’s Week. Mem delighted audiences over 3 ‘sell out’ shows at the Logan Entertainment Centre, and shared her passion for reading and literacy. More on that below.

Project Action Groups are making terrific progress understanding the issues they’re trying to tackle, and bringing diverse people together to share expertise, ideas and experiences. May saw lots of great progress from the groups, including work on Kindy attendance and transition to school, and the establishment of school neighbourhoods with clusters of primary schools and their feeder kindies and child care centres. Our partners at Education Queensland are leading that work.

The project working with young people on high school completion meet with the Logan Youth Arm to understand how the group could support young people in developing their own social change projects to address issues that are relevant to them.

Project 10,12 and 13 (the early development group) will be kicking off a reading engagement program in McDonalds stores across Logan in partnership with First Five Forever in the coming weeks. These sessions aim to engage parents and children in literacy development and build relationships to understand what’s important to families in supporting their child’s early development. This engagement will inform the work of some of the Early Learning Networks getting a start in Eagleby and other areas.
