The Larrikin Ambassador Program
For the love of reading!
Larrikin House are proud to announce the launch of our very own Larrikin Ambassador Program.
What is it?
Larrikin Ambassadors is a peer-to-peer leadership program designed to champion the love of reading. Perfect for primary students from grades 3-6, this program is designed to be flexibly paced with a super fun checklist of activities that can be completed with minimal direction.
Students will develop leadership skills, gain a sense of achievement by completing tasks, and benefit from the added confidence achieved by challenging themselves.
Some tasks will require courage, others a wild imagination! You can even add your own ‘wild card’ challenges.
- Re-create a Larrikin story into a rap or song and perform it.
- Re-design a Larrikin character with your own illustration.
- Re-imagine the ending of a Larrikin story and write it.
- Read a Larrikin story to a class.
- Translate a Larrikin story into a foreign language and read it aloud.
- Run a short story competition.
- Write or film a book review.
- Create an animation / claymation of a Larrikin story.
- Turn a Larrikin story into a play / game.
