International Literacy Day

Sept. 3, 2021

The 8th of September was proclaimed International Literacy Day (ILD) by UNESCO in 1966 with the aim of championing literacy as a fundamental human right and to remind us all of its importance for individuals, communities and societies worldwide.

At 2Simple we want to help by raising awareness of ILD and the importance of young people gaining skills that are needed throughout life in the form of literacy. Here we look at just some of the resources available within Purple Mash that can help young learners engage with literacy and enjoy it for life.

Aug. 6, 2021

Last year we were delighted to announce the release of our Serial Mash storybook, ‘Our Big Kitchen’ inspired by the OBK community kitchen project in the heart of Bondi, Sydney NSW, founded by Rabbi Dr David Slavin in 2005. The project made the Channel 7 News as it inspires individuals to come together to help people in need. The team of volunteers make and distribute meals to those in most need across the communities in Sydney and are at the heart of the project, enabling its big acts of kindness to happen.

How schools are using Purple Mash for remote learning

Aug. 2, 2021

With schools using Purple Mash for remote learning we thought we would ask a few schools how they were using the platform, what was working for them and any top tips that they might have for other schools that may help or give some ideas.
