District Education Officer for the Western District, Margaret Jules-Royer, has affirmed the Ministry of Education’s dedication to the development of reading, not just in schools, but also among the population of Dominica.

Royer addresses audience and participants

“We at the ministry place much emphasis on reading and developing reading skills in our schools, because reading is the key to success in our course to improve our education system,” Royer said.

She urged parents, teachers and principals to continue supporting the students participating in the competition. “I wish to say thanks to all the principals and students who have prepared the students for the reading competition and I’m very satisfied to see the number of parents here to support their children. On behalf of the Ministry of Education I call on all to work towards making Dominica a reading nation” she said.

Five students will move on to the finals of the DBS Reading Competition after today’s round.
