August 24, 1998 - The Adult Education Department is taking to the electronic media in a big way next month, when it starts its public awareness program in observance of International Literacy Day on September 8. Starting September 2, education officials and adult learners will take to the talk show circuit, promoting the need for a more literate society.

Activities will culminate with a rally at the Castries Comprehensive Secondary School where the success stories of the National Adult Literacy Program will be highlighted. Adult learners will do this through a number of presentations of skits, poems and testimonials. Lucy Alterdor-Joseph of the Adult Education Department explains, "In the testimonial learners where they will be expressing some of the successes that they have experienced during their participation in the literacy programs."

The United Nations, Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) first declared the observation of International Literacy Day in 1990.
