Lit­er­acy event a fun way to spend the day

Isis Town and Country - - Life -

ABOUT 130 chil­dren, their par­ents and grand­par­ents packed the Isis Cul­tural Cen­tre to en­joy the Childers Lit­er­acy Fun Day on Thurs­day.

The Lit­er­acy Fun Day was the fi­nal of six Aus­tralian Early De­vel­op­ment In­dex-funded pro­grams to be de­liv­ered within the Childers area.

Chil­dren en­joyed a pup­pet show, dancing and other ac­tiv­i­ties with a lit­er­acy fo­cus.

The idea be­hind the day was to pro­mote the im­por­tance of pre-lit­er­acy skills for chil­dren prior to start­ing school.
