This report, presented at the annual meeting of the Literacy Coalition of New Brunswick (LCNB) in September 2011, includes a summary of activities for 2010-2011; a report from the organization’s president; a financial statement; and a message from the coalition’s honorary patron, writer Sheree Fitch.
Among the highlights of the year was the completion of the Building Capacity for Family Literacy Project, which included six round table sessions and two sessions involving conversations with parents.
In April 2011, the LCNB held its first writing contest. The theme, “Lifelong Learning: the Future of New Brunswick,” was chosen to tie in with International Adult Learners Week, April 2-9. Twenty submissions were received and prizes were awarded to five adult learners.
The year also included the first meeting of the Provincial Literacy Partners group, which is made up of representatives from the LCNB; the Fédération d'alphabétisation du Nouveau-Brunswick (FANB); the National Adult Literacy Database (NALD); and the Workplace Essential Skills and Community Adult Learning Programs of the New Brunswick Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour. The goal of the group is to ensure good communication among those working in the field of literacy and Essential Skills.
