The literary week is a week-long program that aims at fostering the love for literature and Africanism amongst the students of Westerfield College.
This is the college’s way of celebrating brilliant minds and outstanding students in various competitions which cut across various extra-curricular activities such as drama, debate, poetry, public speaking, quizzes, and the annual cultural day event.
