School Visits

Students throughout Malta and Gozo schools have been invited to create cultural projects that clearly distinguish the nature of Maltese culture. This is an initiative that has been taken by the Ministry for Culture in connection with the Year of European Culture.

The initiative was launched at the Kulleġġ San Benedittu Secondary School where Director of Culture Mario Azzopardi explained to students the nature of such projects that would commemorate the Year of Culture. He invited all students to participate and initiate projects that reflect day-to-day life.

All students are encouraged to discover and explore Malta and Gozo’s cultural heritage by doing a project on any aspect of cultural heritage. Therefore, we are encouraging all local schools to participate through projects on cultural heritage prepared by its students. All projects will be displayed in an exhibition to be organised in November. What the students will discover about our cultural heritage will be published in a book.


As part of the EYCH Malta programme, and as part of the Culture Directorate's outreach Programme in schools, the Culture Directorate visited St Margaret College Verdala Secondary, who have organised an exhibition by students projects in relation to Culture. 

Students projects' varied from photography, to scale models, as well as drawings. The school will be participating in the EYCH Malta Schools Competition.
