Good News Stories

Do you have a good news story to share? Or perhaps a story of how you have coped during the last two challenging years? We would like to compile some stories from our community for others to read. The writing and/or reading of these stories could be part of a lesson plan.

If you or your adult literacy student would like to write down that story, email it to us at - readwritenow@nmtafe.wa.edu.au.


In the meantime you may want to look at 26Ten  This program works to improve the literacy and numeracy of adults in Tasmania.

'In 2020, the impact of COVID-19 led to adult literacy students and tutors no longer being able to meet. When they were able to meet again, Libraries Tasmania invited adult learners and tutors to write stories and poems about how they stayed connected during the period of social isolation. This gave people an opportunity to be included in the stories that arose from this defining moment in history.'

These stories were compiled under the heading "Staying Connected: in the shadow of the Pandemic" and can be found here
