Books were a great exercise in generosity

MATT Spooner knows it's the little things that make a difference.

That's why, in the aftermath of the March 31 floods, he and his team at Officeworks Coffs Harbour decided to do something.

Last Tuesday, Matt and his team delivered more than 6800 exercise books to local schools affected by the floods.

“My wife is a teacher at Tyalla Public School and my daughter is a student of Narranga Public School, so I am completely aware of the extent to which local schools were affected during the floods,” Matthew said. “We had the stock and wanted to make a difference to our local community.”

Teachers and students of Coffs Harbour, Tyalla, Narranga, Toormina and Kororo Public Schools will all be on the receiving end of the generous gesture.

Narranga School principal, Roxley Bryant, said the school would now be able to spend departmental funding on other much needed supplies.

“This gift from Officeworks will be distributed among all of our students and allows the school to spend departmental funding elsewhere and offer more supportive learning.”
