The National Literacy Agency, through its Literacy and Information Support Unit, will be celebrating World Book Day during the week starting from Monday 19th to Friday 23rd April 2021. To celebrate this annual event, the Literacy and Information Support Unit is organising the following competitions for Middle and Secondary school students:
Prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Literacy Agency organised several free of charge Family Writing Activities, in Maltese and English, for children and their families in various localities around Malta and Gozo. These activities offered families a positive experience of the writing process in a fun and relaxed setting.
In spite of the scholastic year 2019/2020 was cut short due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the students and educators at Baħrija Primary School participated in the Book Champions Awards initiative, organised by the National Literacy Agency. The intention of this campaign is to acknowledge and reward those schools which are making the best efforts to promote and create a holistic reading culture within their school environment.
We are pleased to announce that Baħrija ~Primary School was awarded the prestigious Gold Award! Well done to all students and educators involved!
