The 8th September was proclaimed International Literacy Day by UNESCO, in 1966, to remind the community worldwide of the importance of literacy for individuals, communities and societies. International Literacy Day 2020 theme is ‘Literacy teaching and learning in the COVID-19 crisis and beyond’, highlighting the lifelong literacy perspective of youth and adults. The recent Covid-19 crisis has shown that there has been a negative impact on the youth and adults who have little or no low literacy skills.

For all teachers, parents and children this back to school year is totally different than any other, for many children this will be the first time that they have been back to school since March.  Bubbles and blended learning were terms that we would not have used this time last year, but terms that we are now all used to. We know that this academic year will be different and challenging in totally different ways and we at 2Simple are here to support you, however we can.
