To further recognize the importance of literacy, The English School on Jalan Kerobokan is donating a portion of the proceeds from a book sale now underway at their campus to a local Balinese primary school.
The English School is a private, non-denominational school serving the needs of local and expatriate students originating from a variety of countries. The British National curriculum followed at the school presents a challenging standard in the core areas of study including reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, and creative arts. Because literacy is the primary access to all areas of study and provides a foundation for successful communications, it is given special value.
Literacy Week September 9 - 13
The English School will sponsor a Literacy Week from September 9 – 13, 2002. Special events are scheduled throughout the week for students of the school. Costume parades for the students dressed like their favorite literary characters; writing and drawing competitions; visits with a local author; a library visit; and participation in a read-a-thon to raise funds for school book purchases.
Funds will also be raised for a local Balinese school via a book sale. Periplus Publishers will be holding a book sales at the school each day from 8:30 am – 2:30 pm in the school gymnasium. Anyone purchasing books during the sales will be assisting a local Balinese school expand their library.
