National Family Learning Week

Upcoming date for your diary: Next week (8-16 October 2005) is National Family Learning Week.

‘Thousands of venues, from shopping centres and leisure centres to schools and libraries, zoos and parks to museums and galleries, will be hosting events for this national campaign. Many of the activities are free and open to all age groups. So you could end up telling stories with your toddlers, salsa dancing with your siblings, trampolining with your teenagers, painting with your partner or gardening with the grandparents.’

Why is this important?
'Families are not only our first and most important teachers but they also teach us the most important things in life. The values, attitudes and culture that we learn from our families can stay with us throughout our lives.

Family Learning Week brings the excitement of learning and discovery back to communities. Mums, dads, grandparents, children and friends participate in locally organised events that reawaken their curiosity to learn.'
