Santa Elena Primary School celebrates Literacy Week 2020

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: International Literacy Day is being celebrated around the world on September 8.

In Belize, the Ministry of Education, schools and educators are observing Literacy Week 2020.

The theme for this year’s Literacy week is “Literacy teaching and learning in the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.”

Schools were encouraged to create their own local literacy theme.

Santa Elena Primary School’s literacy theme this year is “ Literacy has no limits.”

The school has installed its “ Little Library” on campus.

As students across the country resume distance learning today, teachers and administration are encouraging parents to read to and with their children at home.

In celebration of Literacy Week 2020, the school is encouraging parents to bring a book and leave a book at the library.

Principal Andrea Guerra told Breaking Belize News that Santa Elena Primary will engage in virtual storytelling, read-aloud activities involving teachers, and students sharing videos of them reading and students will create bookmarks.

Educators at the school will also engage in an interactive virtual puppet show for students.

“Literacy empowers knowledge broadens horizons, increases opportunities and creates alternatives for a better future,” Guerra said.

Guerra also told us that community members are invited to share their stories with the school and students to promote reading and literacy among all children.
