Dawn Sharif

When Dawn’s grandson Alex started in Prep in 2014, Dawn offered to do ‘grandparent help’ in the classroom. She came weekly, reading with the children, and when Alex moved on at the end of the year, Dawn decided to stay! She has been volunteering in Prep S ever since.

“I’m retired, I have the time and I enjoy seeing people learn to read. I used to teach English as a foreign language so I thought this would be a nice thing to do.”

Prep S love reading with Dawn, with some 100 students benefiting over the last four years, including her granddaughter Francesca. On behalf of all the children who have benefited from your time and generosity, Dawn – thank you. We are grateful for all that you do.
