NLB Read@School Programme

MRL’s Partnership with NLB for the InspiREAD Programme

The InspiREAD Programme is a school-wide reading programme initiated to promote and cultivate a love for reading as a lifelong habit in all students. Through the programme, students are provided with a conducive reading space which has been created for them. Students are introduced to a variety of quality books and interesting reading activities to broaden their minds and ignite the joy of learning.

To achieve these objectives, the school’s Media Resource Library (MRL) committee collaborates closely with the National Library Board (NLB) through their Read@School initiative to promote reading among students in school. Through this initiative, students can enjoy a variety of exciting reading programmes that cater to their reading abilities and interests.
