Nwar Family Literacy Programme

Nwar is an after-school family literacy programme organised by the National Literacy Agency in Malta. The premise of the Nwar programme is that with extended support from dedicated literacy tutors and the crucial role of parents/adults at home, children (8 to 11 years) with literacy difficulties can also grow into proficient, motivated and confident readers and writers.  For this reason, the programme sets to create a learning community, which will eventually give all children the opportunity to obtain the skills required for them to participate fully in society. Family literacy is a term used to describe parents/adults and children learning together. Parents and adults in communities are children’s first teachers. The programme complements day-school programmes and provides parents/adults with practical literacy strategies to assist them in promoting their child’s educational development. This programme is currently being offered in 16 centres across Malta and Gozo including Bormla, Kirkop, Paola, Qormi San Gorg, Qormi San Bastjan, San Gwann, Naxxar, Rabat, Birkirkara, Żejtun, Żabbar, Mosta, St Paul’s Bay, Marsascala, Gżira and Victoria Gozo.
