"The first Grader" this Saturday

The story of an 84 year old Kenyan man Maruge, (Oliver Litondo), who insisted on his right, as offered by the government, to a free education, is the subject of the film 'The First Grader'. When Maruge turns up at the village school he's initially turned away by the principal Mrs. Obinchu (Naome Harris), but his persistence eventually wins her over. 'The First Grader is Magnetic Island Film Society's offering for members and the general public keen to see interesting, quality films. It's screening at the RSL Hall in Hayles Ave, Arcadia, this Saturday night.

Syl Hayes In reply to Fair raises $15,000 for school
What a wonderful outcome for the school! I had a great time face-painting with Luke and Sasha, met lots of kids and parents,scored some great books at the Trash n Treasure stall, and even remembered to vote. Everywhere you looked people were enjoying themselves...such a tribute to the organisers. Well done!
