Pullenvale State School was chosen as one of the recipients of Brisbane Airport Corporation’s Community Giving Fund in 2021. The school will use the BAC grant to buy graphic novels for use as visual cues for children with dyslexia, ADS, and other reading challenges.
According to the Understood For All, graphic novels are a good choice for struggling readers because they look and feel more approachable. Many kids with reading difficulties are also visual learners so having images alongside words provides a bridge for understanding the text.
This year, BAC has provided over $18,000 in grants to 19 charitable organisations and community groups through the community giving fund.
Aside from Pullenvale State School, other school recipients for this year include Upper Mount Gravatt Kindergarten, Hercules Road State School- Rothwell, Carina Kindergarten, Ascot State School, and Rocklea State School.
