Education authorities are investigating an incident which took place last week, which saw an assault on a student and three teachers at Naxxar Middle School.

Sources claim that a troublesome 12-year-old assaulted a fellow student during break time. The assailant then directed his violent behaviour towards three teachers who tried to break up the abuse.

One teacher had her spectacles broken during the assault while the other two teachers were slightly injured. An education ministry spokesperson said that the incident took place on Thursday of last week. 

In line with standard procedure, he said, the school leadership team took immediate action. The police were not involved, but college administration, child protection services and the college’s psychosocial team are attending to the case. 

This is the same school wherein a girl was caught on video being bullied by other students outside the school. More information as the story develops.

Weddings make massive comeback after two pandemic years

Weddings make massive comeback after two pandemic years
May 13 2022 Share

Weddings have made a massive comeback after being continuously put off for two years. Caterers and other businesses involved are working around the clock to keep up with demand as couples seek to finally tie the knot. The rare Friday celebration has become the norm. 

Chamber for Small and Medium Enterprises (GRTU) head Abigail Mamo said that spring 2022 was always planed to be busy ‘as we hoped to be back to normality after two years of pandemic’. 

And that expectation was surpassed since weddings had to be redistributed. The government had announced several restrictions for mass events including weddings. 

After the initial outright ban was lifted, guests had to be seated and lists limited to a small count of people. Despite some deciding to hold a small wedding for loved ones, other waited it out and are set to celebrate the wedding in traditional Maltese fashion, with upwards of 500 guests.

2,400 counterfeit Nike shoes to be destroyed by Customs

2,400 counterfeit Nike shoes to be destroyed by Customs
May 13 2022 Share

Customs has been ordered by the First Chamber of the Civil Court to destroy 2,400 counterfeit pairs of Nike shoes which arrived in Malta last year. 

Customs officers had found a consignment of 100 boxes with the a total of 2,400 pairs of shoes in a container. Suspicions that the shoes were non-genuine were proven correct. 

The shoes were unloaded in the Port of Marsaxlokk from the ship APL Austria, which entered Malta on 17th May last year. 

The American company Nike, along with Swoosh Design, are trademarks used by the company on various products ranging from shoes to caps, and are registered EU Trade Marks. 

Their entry into Malta infringed the property right of the company that made the application, insofar as they were not genuine. Customs were thus ordered to destroy the goods without any compensation within 90 days of the date of the judgement.

May 12 2022 Share

This weekend, local comedian Kevin Naudi will be holding a very special stand-up comedy show for kids aged between 7 and 12 years old and trust us when we tell you that it’s hilarious.

The event will take place at M Space, Blue Box in Imsida and only a few tickets remain!

Speaking about the event, Naudi explained: “From understanding why NO is the quickest and most used word/answer by kids, to realising that watching too much Peppa Pig makes me hungry, to having strong feelings (of dislike) towards a cartoon character that kids love…

“I’m taking kids on a journey of reality checks, on understanding the value of time, to a world of imagining a world in which classic Fairy Tales had to be based on nowadays,” Naudi said.

When purchasing 2 or more tickets, you can get yourself a 25% discount by using promo code JUKDKN25.
