May is Read­ing Month!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Month of May is ob­served here in Saint Lu­cia an­nu­ally as ‘Read­ing Month” by the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, Hu­man Re­source Devel­op­ment and Labour. Read­ing is key to all learn­ing and, con­se­quently, learn­ing to read is the most im­por­tant skill that ev­ery child must de­velop to be suc­cess­ful at school. Re­search has shown that there is a strong cor­re­la­tion be­tween read­ing and aca­demic suc­cess. And through­out the month of May stu­dents and young peo­ple are en­cour­aged to read, as many lo­cal busi­nesses lend sup­port to read­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in schools. Look out for spe­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and in­cen­tives dur­ing the month of May at the bookYard lo­cated at the STAR Pub­lish­ing Com­pound in Mas­sade, Gros Islet.
