Indigenous Literacy Day - 2 September 2020

17 Aug 2020 11:02 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

This year, the Indigenous Literacy Day (ILD) event is going virtual with two wonderful, celebratory events.

Indigenous Literacy Day is a celebration of language and literacy.

  • Listen to a story in a language
  • Learn about the value of language and why learning to read in a first language is important
  • Share what it means for children in remote communities to have access to culturally appropriate books and books in first languages
  • Celebrate the books that have been written and illustrated by communities, for communities.

Wednesday 2 September at 12.30pm: Join the Indigenous Literacy Day, YouTube Live Premiere - a 45-minute celebration of Indigenous language and literacy 

This inspiring virtual event is a window into the work of the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF), the communities they engage and the joy of books and reading. It explores the value of language and shares how ILF builds capacity within communities. Celebrate with a story in language, a heart-felt song by ILF Ambassador, Jessica Mauboy and so much more!

Viewers are encouraged to donate a gold coin on the day of viewing. Funds go towards the purchase of books and learning resources for children in remote communities.

Wednesday 2 September at 2pm: Join us for a special virtual celebration of Indigenous language and literacy to engage, inspire and delight preschool and primary students –

It’s a time to move, shake, dance and sing with a book reading by Cheryl Lardy in Kriol and Justine Clarke (Playschool) in English, plus a catchy melody sung in multiple Indigenous languages by Australia’s favourite popstar, Jessica Mauboy and children from remote communities. Hosted by acclaimed Indigenous author and performer Gregg Dreise.

Early childhood centres and primary schools are encouraged to request children donate a gold coin on the day of viewing. Funds go towards the purchase of books and learning resources for children in remote communities.
