REaD and Sing With Me At Home

Her Excellency Mrs Linda Hurley, wife of the Governer General, launched Paint the Town REaD's  (PTTR) national campaign, REaD and Sing with Me at Home.

REaD and Sing with Me at Home is currently running across 90+ PTTR communities across six States, inviting all communities and families to get involved in singing and reading with the kids, particularly through this time of social isolation.

Here are some way PTTR communities have been participating in Read and Sing with Me at Home:

  • Decorating their homes in red (Mt Druitt NSW, The Swan WA)
  • Sharing favourite books in accessible spots (Casterton VIC)
  • Drive-thru book pickups (Kwinana WA)
  • Live-streaming story times, playgroups and parenting tips (Bundaberg QLD, Inner West Sydney NSW, Liverpool NSW)
  • Social distancing reading activities (Port Lincoln, SA)
