Adult Learners’ Week: Te Tangata Matauranga was launched at the temporary headquarters of ARAS (Adult Reading Assistance Scheme) last night. This international UNESCO event has been celebrated in Aotearoa since 1998. More than 40 countries have learning festivals to acknowledge adult learning in their communities.
Christchurch City Libraries is running classes in computer skills, Creating Readers at Home and Cellphones for Beginners. Check our list of events.
One of the speakers at the launch, Jason Tiatia (Toa Sports Co-ordinator) also reminded us that this year Adult Learners’ Week coincides with Tongan Language Week.
