Fraser Heights applied and received an Aboriginal Enhancement Schools Network (AESN) Spiral of Inquiry grant to promote aboriginal literature in our school. The aboriginal support teacher Brenda Sampson and I chose to do this partly by way of a reading contest. For the past 3 years, we have run a contest called "Aboriginal Reads Month at Fraser Heights". 

During this month all of our aboriginal resources are on display everywhere for quick easy access. We include everything from novels, picture books and graphic novels to non-fiction books about First Nations art, traditions, experiences and  issues. We also create posters and bookmarks promoting our aboriginal collection.
