Literacy Day - What is literacy?

Suva

In Pacific Education, literacy is defined as “the knowledge and skills necessary to empower a person to communicate through any form of language in their society and the wider world, with respect to all aspects of everyday life.”

In other words, literacy is not just English. This is why EQAP administers the Pacific's largest literacy assessment, PILNA, in ten languages!
