More than sixty children from the Motu-Koita Village of Tatana were all smiles as they graduated from Buk Bilong Pikinini’s Early Childhood Literacy Program – today’s graduation marks the fifth for the program.

The children were taught by two librarian teachers with the support of the community and CPL Group of Companies; graduating with the basic skills of reading and writing in English.

About 60 children aged between 4 and 6 graduated today from the Tatana Library Learning Centre.

When the students first began their early childhood learning, they spoke their mother tongue – Motu, but today, they showed off their acquired English reading and writing skills.

Having completed their early childhood Literacy program, they will begin formal education in elementary schools next year.

The Tatana Library Learning Centre was funded by the CPL Group of Companies, through its foundation, as part of their five year support for Buk bilong Pikinini. This year, CPL Foundation renewed its partnership for a further five years after seeing positive results in the initial five-year period.
