The National Literacy Agency would like to announce that the Nwar programme applications for next scholastic year 2021/22 are now open. There have been some modifications to the programme and the application process.
Nwar is an after-school, literacy intervention programme for students who are encountering literacy difficulties in Maltese and/or English. It supports the acquisition of phonological, alphabet, and phonic knowledge, and reading, spelling, writing and comprehension strategies. The Agency offers this programme to students who struggle in literacy. The sessions are held twice a week for a maximum of 4 Nwar semesters.
