Celebrating learning


The Festival of Adult Learning was held throughout New Zealand last week, and the Invercargill community got involved with the theme of Adapted Traditional Pasifika Games.

Literacy Aotearoa cluster 10 manager Ana Pereira said the celebrations in Southland went well with a successful event last week.

“An excellent turnout from our community, with a range of ages, Pasifika cultures, and Maori.

“Everyone stayed from 11am to 2.30pm. We had fun with sharing stories, integrated learning with adapted traditional Pasifika games and, of course, food.”

Literacy Aotearoa was founded to develop, promote and deliver accessible, quality literacy services designed to ensure the people of Aotearoa were critically literate and able to realise their full social, cultural and economic potential.

It worked to deliver learning services to adults of all ages nationwide, in the community and in workplaces, helping them to improve their literacy, numeracy and communication skills.

Ms Pereira said the day was about celebrating adult learning.
