The Great Book Swap was hailed a great success at Margaret River Independent School on Thursday.

The event was a first for the school with over 200 books bought in by students for swapping raising money for the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

MRIS Librarian, Miranda Aitken said by bringing in one or more of their favourite books, students were able to swap books for a gold coin donation. Money is still being counted but over $200 is expected to be raised. “The children are very excited at the opportunity to bring in books they love and swap them while making a real difference in the lives of indigenous children in remote Australia,” Miranda said
