Welcome to the National Literacy and Numeracy Week (NLNW) website. Here you will find information and resources to participate in this year’s literacy and numeracy activities. 

This is the 17th NLNW and we are excited to celebrate the importance of literacy and numeracy, the foundations of learning, with schools, teachers, students and parents across Australia.

Teachers will find a range of resources and activities on this website for literacy and numeracy.

This year, we are encouraging parents and carers to get involved and participate in the Week because positive parental engagement and involvement promotes improved literacy and numeracy learning and student outcomes.
