unnamedCongratulations to Paint Holroyd REaD and Paint Parra REaD  (in partnership with the Parramatta Eels) who have won a Zest Award in the category of Exceptional Community Partnership across a region. The award was for the read with a mate,  a program which focuses on encouraging fathers and father-like figures to read and engage with their children, learning about early literacy and brain development and the important roles they play in their child’s development.
