National Literacy and Numeracy Week

​National Literacy and Numeracy Week is an Australian Government initiative that runs in partnership with state and territory governments.

During the event, many schools and early childhood services hold creative, fun and stimulating activities to explore literacy and numeracy.

See the National Literacy and Numeracy Week website for national activities.

For Victorian activity ideas, see our literacy and numeracy teaching area.
