Valletta Cruise Port has once again teamed up with the National Literacy Agency, an agency promoting shared reading experiences, focusing on early literacy and parental education.
This national literacy programme strives to cultivate a love for reading from an early age. It recognises the crucial role of families and caregivers in instilling a positive approach towards books and raising literacy levels.
The ‘Aqrali Storja’ / 'Read Me a Story' programme annually reaches thousands of children aged 0 to 6 and their parents or carers. Weekly over 80 sessions are held in Maltese and English in centres around Malta and Gozo free of charge. Dedicated animators bring these reading sessions to life for young children, whilst also providing parents or caregivers a chance to bond with their children in an informal learning environment.
A number of reading sessions are held on the Valletta Waterfront at designated days of the year with the aim of bringing literacy to a leading leisure destination.
