The book passport program

The book passport program consists of two campaigns aimed at stimulating a proclivity for reading within children, while getting their parents and teachers involved in the process as well.

So what are the campaigns? The first is a 10 week program, known as a book passport, in which children are given 10 weeks to read 10 books. The second is the 5 week vacation program, known as the mini book passport, in which children are given 5 books to read during the 5 weeks of school vacation on the island. This campaign is carried out to maintain the children’s enthusiasm for reading during that period.

Needless to say we give them an incentive to participate in the project; in both campaigns the children receive a certificate of participation and a small gift upon completion of the program and there is also a prize for the teacher and school with the highest percentage of full book passports submitted.
