Newspapers in Education web site

(Duffy's) Books in Homes Programme was inspired by Alan Duff who, with the help of Christine Fernyhough, developed the idea after realising that failures in adult life often stem from childhoods spent in bookless homes.

Twice a year special Role Model Assemblies are held at every school. Sportspeople, musicans, artists, writers, radio personalities, television presenters, fashion designers and many other New Zealanders visit Duffy schools, present books and talk to the kids about their achievements and goals. They tell the kids "It's Cool to Read" and make a connection between success and reading.
