Adult Learner's week and World Literacy Day celebration 2012

3rd - 9th September 2012

Members of the ACE network, Southern REAP and Southern Adult Literacy once again united in support of Adult Learner's Week and World Literacy Day. Their combined efforts along with generous support of Skyline Enterprises and the Salvation Army resulted in a week of promoting the value of continued adult learning and literacy.

Promotional material and course information was displayed throughout the week at O'Connell's shopping centre food court. Salvation Army supported the celebration week as well with a free book giveaway on World Literacy Day.

The highlight of the week's events was a light luncheon followed by an introduction to the innovative "Speed Learning Tool". Her Worship the Mayor Vanessa van Uden was in attendance to present awards to eight members from the Adult Community Education Network in recognition of their contribution to adult learning. Finally a BIG thank you to Judy Williamson, the main coordinator of the week's events. We very much appreciate the time and effort that she puts in voluntarily.

  1. A lot of people, it is true, that stop getting education because they think that they are too old enough to have education like their children but I would like to share that there is not age limit in having education from www.bestessayservicereviews.com and it is always valuable for us to have education.

  2. Thanks a lot for sharing. By the way, if you have children who are students or anyone else who is a student and requires additional help with writing, an essay writer who is a professional will help you with accomplishing your assignments.
