Jun 28 2024 Share

The Malta Union of Teachers (MUT) has officially retired its directives at MCAST, easing weeks of tension for students who were unable to receive their marks. This resolution follows productive discussions between the MUT and Prime Minister Robert Abela, who pledged that students would receive their marks in a recent Facebook post.

For several weeks, MCAST students were under immense stress due to the directives, which resulted in withheld marks amidst unresolved issues between educators and the administration. This situation has now been alleviated, much to the relief of the student body.

Prime Minister Robert Abela expressed his satisfaction with the outcome, stating in his post: “I am pleased that the discussions we had this week with MCAST students and the MUT have borne fruit. While talks and collective negotiations continue, students will be given what is rightfully theirs so they can move forward with peace of mind to shape their future.”

In a recent statement by the Ministry for Education, Sport, Youth, Research and Innovation, it was highlighted that an agreement was reached with regards to the negotiations between the Malta Union of Teachers and MCAST with regards to the collective agreement. With that, the MUT suspended the directives related to the distribution of students’ exam marks, allowing their academic journey to continue.

A team of coaches assesses each player and grades their overall performance through a point system. 12 hour and 24 hour trials are part of training plan.

The athletes’ performance throughout the training programme will determine who of them will make the cut for the final 40, who will eventually take part in the 53 hour volleyball marathon. These athletes will be joined by over 100 volunteers who are key to making the marathon happen.

The 53 hour Volleyball Marathon in aid of Dar tal-Providenza is supported by Bank Of Valletta as its main sponsor together with Pif Paf, PwC, CareMalta, Eurosport, Vibe and PaviPama.
