Crazy Hair Day at St Joseph’s Primary School had a good number of students including Lylah Tommy (left) Tama Maxwell, Alesi Ralulu and Lukarose Akava sporting creative and whacky hair styles.

Five-year-old Lylah Tommy was happy with the “caterpillar” hairstyle her mother had patiently created for her yesterday morning using fancy twists and colourful ties, in celebration of Literacy Week.

Literacy is most commonly defined as the ability to read and write. 

Across the Cook Islands, Literacy Week takes place from September 5 to 9, 2022. This year’s International Literacy Day will be held on September 8 under the theme, “Transforming Literacy Learning Spaces”.

Cook Islands schools are celebrating literacy as the foundation of all learning with a range of activities this week.
