Layshia-Rose Camilleri, a Year 2 student from the Gozo College Qala Primary is the first student from the Gozo College Primary schools to be awarded the title of Reading Star. The Reading Stars campaign was launched by the National Literacy Agency in collaboration with the Department of Curriculum Management, to promote a love for reading anywhere, anytime. Students are promoted as role models when they read in public spaces.
Layshia- Rose was nominated by her teacher, Ms. Tracy Vella Haber and she was ‘caught reading’ while her peers were doing some class work with the teacher. Layshia-Rose fosters a love for reading and she takes every opportunity to stop and read. She was awarded a letter of achievement and a book voucher sponsored by Merlin Library.
More nominations are welcome. We look forward to catch more reading stars and promote more students as reading role models.
