Laura speaks in English and Yumplatok (Torres Strait Creole)
Laura, a mother of eight, first learnt literacy and numeracy skills by counting fish, shells, seeds and making beads in the Torres Strait. Laura explains that things have changed a lot compared to when she went to school. She has encouraged her children to use literacy and numeracy skills everyday through activities like reading nutrition labels, writing shopping lists and paying bills.
