Welcome to my website! Here, you will be able to keep track of the progress the children make each week as part of my service project ‘Share my Story’ partnered with the Tea Tree Gully Library.
First, a little about me. My name is Manas Prasad, I am a student in Year 12 at St Peter’s College. I am doing this project because I wanted to increase my social and community reach. I am studying the IB (International Baccalaureate) and as part of this, service is a big aspect of this and as a result, I wanted to start this venture.
This idea came from my primary school days. Back in 2011, in year 5, I was part of a group at school where we were allowed to write and publish our own stories in the school library. My story was called ‘Blitz the Bird’. I remember the proud accomplished feeling I felt once I had completed it. At that age, we never had anything that we could say was done completely by ourselves. I want to share this rewarding feeling with the community’s youth which I why I started this.
A big thanks to Amy Konsidiak, Michelle Gilleard, Heather and the Tea Tree Gully Library for helping me with this project. Your help and willingness to get on board is amazing and I hope that this can continue long after we finish.
I would also like to thank all the people who have come on board to participate! I hope it is a rewarding experience for you all!
