National Literacy and Numeracy Week
National Literacy and Numeracy Week represents a collaborative approach by the Australian Government and school communities to highlight the importance of literacy and numeracy skills for all children and young people, with a specific focus on school-aged children.
National Literacy and Numeracy Week gives schools the opportunity to get involved in a range of literacy and numeracy activities. The week aims to recognise locally the achievements of students and the work of teachers, parents and members of the community who support young people to develop stronger literacy and numeracy skills.
Confirmed date: 27 August to 2 September 2012
The NLNW website has been updated with the initial 2012 information, including information about the national literacy and numeracy activities. Teacher resources and prize draw details will be added as the week draws closer.
The 2012 brochures and posters will be distributed to all primary and secondary schools in mid May 2012.
Schools across Australia can join the fun and celebrate National Literacy and Numeracy Week by taking part in the exciting national activities, Reach for the Stars, National Celebration of Literacy and the Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards!
