Students at a small school in New Zealand got a lesson in the importance of reading from an international supermodel yesterday.

Model, actress, and Dancing With the Stars alumnus Rachel Hunter launched a new reading initiative at Hautapu School in the North Island and handed over a $20,000 cheque to the Storylines Trust – a charity established to ensure school children in New Zealand have access to books – on Tuesday.

During the launch, Hunter – who was born in New Zealand – read stories to the 6-year-old students and announced that she has partnered with the charity and the Tip Top ice cream company to provide $50,000 worth of books in small parcels to primary schools in an attempt to encourage more people to read aloud to children. She said that New Zealand was a great place for children to learn, and that she used to read for two hours every night when she was growing up.

Hunter was accompanied by her children Liam and Renee, her father Wayne, and fiancé Jarret Stoll.
