Around 500 students from Year 1 to Year 10 are benefitting from an eight-week educational programme during the summer holidays. The lessons are being delivered face to face in 7 centres around Malta and Gozo and also online in a virtual school. The initiative set up by the Ministry for Education is another bid to help eligible students catch up on education lost through the pandemic.
The specific programme includes a variety of academic and enrichment activities, from Maths, English, Maltese, Science lessons to activities designed to build confidence, friendships and improve wellbeing.
Teachers involved are saying that it is very good to see so many children having this opportunity to enjoy activities supporting their mental and physical health, alongside their educational progress.
