I am delighted to announce the upcoming celebration of "Reading is Fun Week" in our beautiful territory, which will take place from Monday, October 9 to Friday, October 13, 2023, under the inspiring theme, "Reimagining Reading Beyond the Book." This week represents our unwavering commitment to enhancing the literacy skills of our students and fostering a lifelong love for reading.
The Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture would like to thank all schools, students, media houses, organisations, and wider community for a successful 2021 Reading is Fun Week.
Mrs. H. Lynden Smith is featured as she was presented with the Ministry of Education's Literacy Award during the opening ceremony for ‘Reading is Fun Week’ on Sunday, October 10. Mrs. Smith who introduced ‘Reading is Fun Week’ in 1992 and other projects over the years was honoured for her contribution to literacy and reading in the Virgin Islands.
