Books in Homes Partners with mIoT to Celebrate National Water WeekOct 18, 2021 0
Books in Homes is delighted to announce a new partnership with Brisbane-based IoT technology company mIoT to celebrate National Water Week around Australia.
mIoT has distributed five book packs to five schools in the Books in Homes community.
“All of the children’s books included in our National Water Week donated packs were chosen for their water theme and embed a First Nation’s perspective—either having been written or illustrated by Indigenous authors and artists.”
The five schools that received the pack include Dajarra State School, which is situated in outback Queensland. Water is so scarce in Dajarra that non potable water has to be brought into town by tanker once a week. The Council also supplies eight litres of drinking water per household per day. Another school is Bulla Camp School in remote NT, which is situated on a river from where the community obtains their drinking water. The water is pumped from the river and combined with bore water. The three other schools are East Kalgoorlie Primary School in the outback goldfields region of Western Australia, Brungle Public School in regional New South Wales, and Kaurna Plains School in Adelaide, SA. Indigenous student enrolment is between 92% to 100% in these five schools.
Thank you, mIoT, for this wonderful opportunity.
