National Literacy and Numeracy Week is coming

National Literacy and Numeracy Week runs from the 27th of August to the 2nd of September. Schools throughout Murray and across the nation will be taking part in and celebrating it.

Federal Member for Murray, Dr Sharman Stone says competent reading, writing and maths are the foundations for all learning.

“We have some great Public and School Libraries in the electorate. Children also learn to read best when parents take the time to read to children when they are young.”

“Many families in the electorate have an added challenge of not speaking English at home. These families are often receiving extra help in their schools to learn English.

“People that would like to know more can contact my office on 1300 132 413. Details can be found online as well at www.literacyandnumeracy.gov.au

“There are great people involved and prizes that students can win for their classes” Sharman Stone said.
