On September 8,
2018, International Literacy Day was celebrated across the globe. The
special day was created by the United Nations in 1966 during a UNESCO
focus is literacy and skills development. “Despite
progress made, literacy challenges persist, and at the same time the demands
for skills required for work, evolve rapidly. This year, International Literacy Day explores and highlights integrated approaches that simultaneously can
support the development of literacy and skills, to ultimately improve people’s
life and work and contribute to equitable and sustainable societies,” shared
the United Nations.
In Pembina Trails, we believe in the power
of literacy. Please take the time to watch this video on how we are supporting
literacy in all our 34 schools.
