National Book Week

Book week ends on high note

Even though the celebrations were a week late, this was to give their practical teaching staff from Madang Teachers College (MTC) a hands-on experience in organized school activities.

During the opening remarks made by the head teacher, Benedict Baleng, he encouraged students to read more so that they are able to build their vocabulary and know about places so that they are able to prosper in life.

District Education Coordinator, Markus Tipepe said the National Book Week is an important annual event.

“The aim of today’s activities is to encourage our students to get into a healthy habit of reading books starting from an early stage. We also like to see more students coming out and speaking confidently on certain issues,” Tipepe said.

Elizah’s thrilling reading act was one of the highlights of August 11, the final day of a week-long event organised at the literacy library to mark the annual National Book Week.

The event will be held at the Taraka main campus.

The library management is bringing the celebrations to the campus for the first time, unlike in the past years where they go out to schools to celebrate.

The theme for this year is “Libraries for National Building”.

Several schools in the city have been invited to participate in the fair, with lots of fun activities planned by the staff, including quizzes, treasure hunts and search race.
