About National Literacy and Numeracy Week

National Literacy and Numeracy Week represents a collaborative approach by the Australian Government and school communities to highlight the importance of literacy and numeracy skills for all children and young people, with a specific focus on school-aged children.

The Week gives schools the opportunity to be involved in a range of literacy and numeracy activities. The Week aims to recognise locally the achievements of students and the work of teachers, parents and members of the community who support young people to develop stronger literacy and numeracy skills.

National activities

Schools across Australia can join the fun and celebrate National Literacy and Numeracy Week by taking part in the exciting national activities, Reach for the Stars, National Celebration of Literacy and the Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards.

For more information and to register for these activities, visit the national NLNW website www.literacyandnumeracy.gov.au
