International Literacy Day at Hampton
This year, Hampton School pupils took part in International Literacy Day by dressing up as their favourite book characters. It was wonderful to see our pupils in our Pre-Primary and Primary Department so involved in this event.
As part of the day, they took turns to share with their classmates why they like their chosen character and why they enjoy the book or comic in which their character appears. Literacy is more than just the ability to read and write. It also includes the ability to express and understand ideas.
UNESCO declared September 8th to be International Literacy Day. It is a day when world organisations unite to shine a spotlight on global literacy needs, which goes hand in hand with UNESCO's mission: literacy for everyone everywhere.
