Literacy Week

Cultural Literacy for children is vital

Its children, enrolled in BbP’s ECE program, studied the importance of the ocean, village, forest and animals in PNG culture through craft activities and story-telling by parents and officers from the National Museum of PNG. The children will be displaying their stories, which will be added to the BbP learning app so all children across the country can share their culture and customs.

More than just writing and reading

To achieve the theme “Quality Literacy for Economic Development”, Papua New Guineans, especially children, should adopt right attitudes to complement their literacy skills.

This was the take home message at Boera Primary School in commemoration of the National Literacy Week.

Pacific Sports Marketing Management Limited (PSMML) & ExxonMobil PNG are coordinating activities at schools in the Hiri West District.

The Goodwill Values Program conducted in LNG impacted communities benefits this week’s literacy week celebrations.

Globes fly high

With the theme: “Reading: It makes a world of difference”, children and donors were engaged in learning about the world, including BbP ambassador Lynda Babao O’Neill.

"BbP believes that literacy is more important than it ever was, in this world of text and email, and of written information,” says Anne-Sophie Hermann, BbP founder, chair and Canberra Office director.
