According to the United Nations Education, Scientific, and Culture Organization (UNESCO), “Since 1967, International Literacy Day (ILD) celebrations have taken place annually around the world to remind the public of the importance of literacy as a matter of dignity and human rights.”

This year, the theme of International Literacy Day (ILD) is Literacy Teaching and Learning in the COVID-19 Crisis and Beyond.

Last year, on Friday, September 6th, students and teachers observed International Literacy Day at ISNS. It was a gorgeous Shenzhen day. We gathered outside on the field and participated in a communal Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) event.

Once again, ISNS celebrated International Literacy Day, with social distancing in mind. On September 8th, students and teachers recognized the event by setting aside time to enjoy a fiction or non-fiction book, e-book, magazine, and/or graphic novel in the language of their choice throughout the day.

Although International Literacy Day is once a year, we want to encourage you to celebrate literacy as often as you can. Why not take the time to read on your own or to your children or with your friends and celebrate the joy of reading.

一起庆祝国际扫盲日!

根据联合国教科文组织,自1967年以来,世界各地每年都会举办“国际扫盲日”庆祝活动,以提醒公众识字作为一种自尊和人权的重要性。

        今年,国际扫盲日将聚焦”2019冠状病毒危机期间及以后的扫盲教育与学习”。

        去年9月6日星期五,ISNS的学生和老师们一起庆祝了国际扫盲日。这一天是深圳美丽的一天。我们聚集在室外的操场上,参加了一个集体的 “放下一切一起阅读”的活动。 

        今年,我们将再一次庆祝国际扫盲日;在9月8日(星期二)当天,学生和老师抽出时间来阅读任一自己喜欢语言的小说或科普类书籍、电子书、杂志和漫画小说。

        尽管国际扫盲日一年举办一次,不过我们想鼓励大家经常阅读。何不花点时间陪孩子或者和朋友一起享受阅读的乐趣呢?

        欢迎大家在下方留言分享自己最近阅读的书籍。
