National Literacy and Numeracy Week is a special week to celebrate the progress Australian schools are making in raising the literacy and numeracy levels of all students. National Literacy and Numeracy Week showcases the hard work school communities have undertaken to increase their efforts to improve literacy and numeracy standards of students.
