HIPPY Bowenfels celebrated their Graduation for the Class of 2017 on Wednesday, November 22.
Program coordinator Ashlea Werner said the evening was a celebration of the HIPPY families, which recognised the efforts and achievements of all involved in the program from coordinators and home tutors, to the parents, carers and children.
She said HIPPY had “encouraged a love of learning and built self-esteem and confidence of their children to enjoy and achieve at school.”
Overall 31 families graduated from the two year program from across Lithgow, Wallerawang and Portland.
These families completed 45 modules of literacy activities in the process.
