The Book Bursary Programme was established by the Government of Saint Lucia in 2002 for children who attend infant and primary schools. This public assistance programme was initiated specifically to assist parents and guardians of children who are unemployed, needy or otherwise challenged. It provides textbooks related to all the core subjects that are being taught at the primary school. The book distribution aspect of the programme runs for at least five weeks during the summer at the St. Aloysius R.C. Boys’ Primary School.
