“The Readers and Writers programme at Julia Gabriel Centre helped Amaatra excel at the writer’s workshop she has at her school. Amaatra always gets great comments for her writing and illustration from her school teachers. The personal attention she got from her teachers at Julia Gabriel Centre has encouraged Amaatra to discover her love for reading, writing and expressing herself!”
