SET Fairs are held regularly across the four Cape York Welfare Reform O-Hubs in Aurukun, Coen, Hope Vale and Mossman Gorge.
In Mossman Gorge, the Mossman State Primary School regularly invites O-Hub staff to set up a SET stall on campus to encourage educational purchases.
This included a stall at the Book Fair in March, which helped to encourage families to purchase more books for their homes-incredibly important for promoting early literacy.
O-Hub staff also attended the Parent Open Night at the School and had 25 students make purchases from their SET accounts.
At all SET Fairs, it is wonderful to see parents and their children walking around, browsing the educational materials and looking at books together.
It is also fantastic to see how proud it makes parents to get involved in their children’s educational journeys.
