Community Groups Receive the Seniors' Literacy and Learning Award
Congratulations to the Colchester Adult Learning Association and the Great Village Community Association who were honoured November 15, 2013 with the Seniors' Literacy and Learning Award for their "Telling Our Stories" project.
This project helped seniors in the Great Village area to practice and build on their literacy skills by reading and writing for a purpose. With several meetings, interviews and discussions, the seniors became fully engaged in writing, editing and sharing their personal stories. They even published their stories in a book.
This project is a wonderful example of a successful literacy program that's helped seniors build confidence in themselves. Congratulations from the Department of Seniors!
