 Family Literacy Day is celebrated Nationally on January 27th

The theme this year is “Celebrate Your Heritage." Canada is a great diverse country full of different cultures. Take time to explore and learn about your heritage. Celebrate what you've found and share your culture with others. There's no better way to learn about your family, than together as a family.

 ABC Family Literacy states: “Family literacy focusses on parents, grandparents and other family members to improve the reading and writing skills of the whole family. By reading to children and engaging in fun literacy activities regularly, adults actively keep their own skills sharp and also help children improve their skills. Family literacy activities strengthen the relationship between family members which, in turn, encourages lifelong learning. Without adult support and a strong foundation at home, a child is less likely to be successful and engaged in school."
