National Literacy and Numeracy Week helps to raise awareness of the importance of literacy and numeracy at school and beyond.
There are many ways to get involved in 2017.
In numeracy, students solve problems in the Thinkers are Winners activity. Other activities use data to explore statistics in sports and discover Who won it?
In literacy, students are encouraged to write Six Word Stories or spread the love of reading in Catch-a-Reader.
Digital Literacy was introduced in 2016 as an integral part of the week's activities.
