Celebrating Literacy & Numeracy Week

December 1, 2013

Students at St John the Baptist Catholic School, Freshwater, were thrilled to meet and learn from nine children’s book authors and illustrators who visited as part of the school’s celebration of Literacy and Numeracy Week.

The children were treated to presentations from the authors and illustrators, learning how to make their own writing and illustrations tell a story. Authors and illustrators then joined in, as the school celebrated literature and a love of reading with a whole school afternoon tea.  Authors and illustrators were more than happy to sign and write personal messages to children in copies of their books.
