ALEA is pleased to once again be working with AATE and the Australian Government in 2014 on the Literacy activities to be held during National Literacy and Numeracy Week. The Minister has announced the dates for NLNW which will be held from 25 August to 31 August.
The Department of Education is managing the website and there will be a range of activities that we hope will engage students of all ages. The main event will be the mass simultaneous book read, Read for Australia. It is hoped that at 2.00 pm on 29 August, students in schools across Australia will come together to read Sunday Chutney by Aaron Blabey.
Plan for your school to be involved and check the site periodically to catch up on what is happening: www.literacyandnumeracy.gov.au
ALEA is looking for teachers to write notes relating to Sunday Chutney. 'Read full story' for all the details.
