About literacy

‘Literacy involves students listening to, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating oral, print, visual and digital texts, and using and modifying language for different purposes in a range of contexts’. Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA)

Learning to read is an important foundational skill in young children's literacy development, and schools and families play key roles in helping them achieve this exciting milestone.
