On Saturday 14th of March committee members from Tai Tokerau, Auckland, Waiariki, Tauranga and Waikato Literacy Councils came together at Papatoetoe West School in Auckland to discuss a range of topics. The workshop was facilitated by members of our NZLA (New Zealand Literacy Association) executive committee.
The day was immensely beneficial for WLA (Waikato Literacy Association) committee members who were able to attend. Each of the Literacy Councils brought their own unique sets of solutions, strengths and strategies to share.
It was a great opportunity to catch up with familiar faces and also build relationships with committee members from other Literacy Councils. Through a number of presentations, those that are relatively new to our committee were able to better understand: NZLA’s affiliation with the International Literacy Association (ILA); NZLA’s history as an organisation; and how NZLA’s website has grown into a great digital platform for promoting literacy in New Zealand and abroad.
This biennial event continues to provide value for those that attend, ensuring that all councils that are affiliated with NZLA are able to effectively promote literacy across Aotearoa.
