There were 25 fathers, who volunteered to help in the area of literacy.
The aim of the event was also to bring more male role models into the junior school.
�Dads� involvement in reading to their children has been shown to have a huge impact on children�s abilities and their development,� assistant head of junior school Yvette Clifton said.
�Research has shown children whose dads read to them behave and concentrate better, are more interested in books later on, have wider vocabularies, better problem-solving skills and are better at maths.
�It is also really important that our boys, who often struggle more than girls with their literacy, see that reading is not just for the girls.
�We are lucky in the Mandurah area because a lot of fathers are on shift or FIFO rosters, which means they can be around a lot more for their kids during school times.�
