24 August 2015
February is a busy month for events which come with a lot of reading material, from the serious to the fanciful. Valentine’s Day (February 14th) is probably the most well-known and commercially celebrated date in February, with numerous articles available online (click here for one with cloze tests, comprehension and spelling exercises).
Chinese New Year’s day falls on February 19th in 2015 and again, there are numerous articles online (click here for the Sydney website for Chinese New Year’s celebrations). 2015 is the year of the goat, also known as the year of the sheep and/or the ram, and there is plenty of reading material available via Google.
World Cancer Day falls on February 4th (click here for a link) as does Pancake (Shrove) Tuesday (click here). ‘Darwin Day’ – celebrating Charles Darwin and his contributions to science and the study of evolution – falls on February 12th (click here). On a much less serious note, National Tooth Fairy Day falls on February 28th (click here to find out all about it).
Australia Day falls on January 26th each year, and it’s a national public holiday. Google ‘Australia Day’ and you’ll find numerous articles on its history, significance and how people celebrate it; you will also find a wealth of information on the official Australia Day website here.
You might also like to google ‘Australiana’. What student wouldn’t want to know more about football, meat pies, kangaroos, Holden cars, Hills hoists, lamingtons, Anzac biscuits – and Vegemite? (Although he/she might not like the taste of that last one…)
Christmas 2014 is approaching fast!
To celebrate another year with Literacy Network, please come and join us for a drink and some snacks.
4pm-6pm, Friday December 12th
Literacy Network Office
18 Wentworth St, Manly
Please RSVP by the 5th December to let us know if you are able to join us.
