Seven years ago Jan Pedersen decided she was concerned
 about children having difficulty with their reading
 and recognized that the best way to teach children at an early age 
was for someone to go in and help them.

and later in the Metropolitan area.

student assistance program, for primary schools to make 
a tangible contribution towards improved reading abilities

In case you need a little reminder of how beautiful Shell Beach 
at Australia's Coral Coast is, here's one snapped by mkz.imagery (IG). 
 This incredible spot is tucked away in the pristine Shark Bay 
. It might not look like it from this photo, but that's not sand you see! 
This special beach is actually made up of billions of tiny shells 
stretching for more than 100 kilometres and between seven and ten metres deep.
