Willans Hill School on Radio National

Recently I blogged about the fabulous literacy program at Willans Hill School in Wagga Wagga. (See “Literacy for All at Willans Hill“.) This week, we were very excited as The World Today on Radio National also did a segment on the program.

The segment is included below.

“Small school talks up literacy program”

You can also find the original link to the segment at http://www.abc.net.au/worldtoday/content/2011/s3250205.htm
