The Ministry of Education has announced the implementation of the Starfall Education Programme to assist Primary School students in improving their literacy and numeracy skills.

The Starfall Programme has a comprehensive curriculum offering a wide range of educational content; including phonics, reading, language arts, mathematics, and more.

Representative from the Ministry of Education, Maureen Fergusson says the new educational platform also emphasizes a phonics-based approach to reading.

The Starfall application caters to various age groups, from pre-primary to early primary, and is known for its interactive and engaging learning activities.

The Starfall initiative was born of the COVID-19 Response Project funded by the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and the Caribbean Development Bank, a project which aims to promote the continuity of teaching and learning.
