THE Sycamore School has received a $10,000 grant to purchase new books catering for students with different needs and reading abilities.
The school is among 10 community organisations across Queensland sharing in $69,000 raised at the Heritage Bank Charity Golf Day.
School principal Ronwyn Collier said the grant would go towards new decodable readers to meet the needs of students at the school.
"Decodable readers are written in a way that children can decode every single sound so that they can read whole words and then whole sentences," Ms Collier said.
"Thanks to the generosity of Heritage Bank we are going to be able to buy a variety of high interest, low level readers for older students as well, which will ensure we cater for all students from Prep (to) Year 8.
"This gift will not only benefit the present cohort of students but will have an ongoing impact for many students in the future too."
A Heritage Bank spokesperson said many organisations had been nominated for grants, with recipients chosen because of their work to give back to their communities.
Heritage Bank CEO Peter Lock said the money raised at the Charity Golf Day had pushed total donations to community organisations past $800,000.
“The funds raised go towards helping a huge number of local organisations continue doing their fantastic work in the community," Mr Lock said.
