The official song for the 2023 Games of the Small States of Europe, set to be held in Malta, has just been released – and it is sung by local singers and songwriting sensations Aidan and Amber. 

The duo came together to bring the official anthem for the games as anticipation builds up for the sporting events to be held in around one month. 

The song, composed by Elton Zarb and Amber herself, was unveiled during a press conference in which Sports Minister Clifton Grima spoke about the importance of these games for Malta. 

Minister Grima said that these games will not only continue to place Malta on the map of sport, but it will be the occasion wherein our country’s athletes will get to execute their training and the investment put into them. 

Meanwhile, the experience will be an enriching one for the volunteers participating as they will contribute to the enriching of sport and movement on the island.

The press conference was also addressed by Chief Executive of Sport Malta Mark Cutajar as well as the President of the Maltese Olympic Committee Julian Pace Bonello.

From competing in international competitions such as YAGP (Youth America Grand Prix) and GDO (Global Dance Open) and attending several courses, both internationally and locally, Cassar’s next step will see her performing at the world renowned theme park. 

The audition was around 7 hours long, but Cassar managed to get the gig and despite going up against dancers from all over the world, including Brazil, Bali and Greece. 

Receiving a direct phone call to get the contract details down, Cassar told MaltaDaily how she had to overcome a lot of obstacles to achieve her dream. 

She opened up about how she had to miss a lot of social activities, in the process losing a lot of friends, and even being discouraged by some individuals. All this whilst juggling her studies to eventually become a physiotherapist. 

Well done Elisa and we wish you a massive good luck on your journey!

Gozitan students should sit for exams in Gozo, MP urges

Gozitan students should sit for exams in Gozo, MP urges
Apr 27 2023 Share

Nationalist Party MP Alex Borg has issued a letter to University of Malta Rector Alfred Vella and Education Minister Clifton Grima, urging them to allow Gozitan students to sit for exams in Gozo. 

The issue concerns exams which are conducted through WISEFLOW, an online system which allows students to sit exams on their own personal laptop.

Despite this, students would still need to be present at the Tal-Qroqq Campus to undertake the examination. 

Borg wrote that while the method of examination cannot be contested, it should be considered whether the sitting and invigilation should take place in Gozo. 

This would reduce the hassle Gozitan students face in regards to travelling to Malta on such an important academic day. Borg believes that through training of employees as well as the relocation of resources, the issue can be solved for so many students who would benefit from the change.

After Love Island Malta unveiled their official host, Yazmin Helledie, we thought it would be a great idea to make you more familiar with the face you’ll be seeing during this long anticipated program on Maltese TV.

Yazmin rose to prominence during X-Factor Malta season 2 when she was paired with James Mifsud and tutored by Howard Keith. 

However, what you might not know is that she participated in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 4 times, being a massive fan of the competition as a singer and songwriter.

But there is more to Yazmin outside of the world of music, having graduated from the University of Malta with a degree in B.Sc Communication Therapy and spending time working as an LSE with students.

Her latest gig as Love Island Malta host will undoubtedly push Helledie’s career forward, considering the popularity the programme has achieved off of Maltese shores.

What do you think of the casting?
