National Literacy and Numeracy week is quickly approaching. In fact, it is closer than it may even appear!
This year is the 15th Anniversary of NLNW in Australia. At my school we are having our very own theme of “15”. Don’t you think we are brilliant!! While I’m not sure that my school has always celebrated NLNW we certainly do now. For the LN Team (just try and guess what the L and N stand for) it is our main event. We take the opportunity to take over the school and promote every single aspect of ‘the fundamentals’. I think the slogan for NLNW is a bit cutesy and I do whatever I can to avoid saying it. But, I do try to make the week as enjoyable as possible for everyone at school. Teachers, students and support staff all have an opportunity to participate in competitions and activities throughout the week.
I’m looking forward to NLNW and I’m looking forward to the hot bubble bath I reward myself with on the Friday night, when it is all over!
