Books are the cornerstone of our children’s learning. Literacy skills help all of us to effectively learn about the world around us, communicate our ideas and impart knowledge. Therefore the value of exposing kids to books from an early age and throughout their schooling years can not be under-estimated.
The Alan Duff Charitable Foundation, known as Duffy Books in Homes, is a charity that donates brand new books to kids attending low decile schools. They are proud to provide free books to over 100,000 New Zealand children in 520 schools, three times a year. The charity also has a fantastic theatre show that tours participating schools.
Now Duffy Books in Homes is pleased to present their first public show at The Auckland Performing Arts Centre during the October 2017 school holidays. ‘Duffy and Global Girl Save the World’ is an entertaining show that features puppetry and exciting science experiments! Take the kids along for some school holiday entertainment.

The show is suitable for 5 to 12 year-olds and runs for 45 minutes. Tickets are $5 per person and under fives are free.
