A three day literacy training held at the national library in Honiara ended successfully yesterday.
About 20 participants from different schools around Honiara city attended the workshop.
The ministry of education and human resource development funded the training with the sum of $22, 901.
Speaking to the paper director of national library Margaret Talasasa explained this program was all about uplifting literacy schools in and around Honiara city.
“We start off with schools in and around town before going out in the provinces.
“Literacy is one of the important learning areas that a child should learn before going to senior schools.”
She said in order for a child to be fluent in speaking English and writing they should learn their literature at the lower level.
“This is one problem that many schools in the country as a whole do not consider most because they do not understand how to go about it.”
Ellen Pua, chief librarian said this program helped the trainers to promote literacy in their schools.
Certificates of attendances were presented to the trainers by the ministry’s acting deputy secretary James Bosamata at the end of the training.
