Tristian Saliba, a Year 4 student at Kercem Primary was caught reading in the school playground during break time and was awarded the title of Reading Star. As a prize he was given an achievement letter and a book voucher sponsored by Merlin Library so that he can continue to foster his love for reading.
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.
The Literacy Department within the Gozo College is on the lookout to catch more Reading Stars across the College!
