Request for Children’s Books from a Torres Strait Island School

Hi Folks – this request appeared on Facebook on Thursday 24 September.  It is legit and I have sent a few books their way.  If you can help out please do. The Tagai State College in the Torres Strait is requesting books suitable for primary school students (5-12 years old).

No idea where the Torres Strait is? It is a small stretch of ocean (and islands) between the very top of Australia (Pacific Ocean side) and Papua New Guinea. This is the school website: Tagai State College . The Campus requesting the books has 49 students!
