Mattia spends hours of his free time surprising young cancer patients in oncology hospitals, bringing a smile on their face, explained Metsola. 

The President struck an iconic Spider-man pose with Mattia, who shares his experiences meeting kids everywhere and blessing their lives with some superhero wholesomeness. 

‘Sei un esempio per tutti noi’ (You’re an example for us all), wrote Metsola.

First Ever Group To Graduate In Politics In Malta

First Ever Group To Graduate In Politics In Malta
Nov 27 2023 Share

The first group in Malta has just graduated in Malta with a Bachelor of Honours in Politics and Governance from the University of Malta. 

The B.A. (Hons.) in Politics and Governance aims to politically educate citizens for active engagement in Maltese public life. It focuses on under-represented occupational and social groups, emphasising public policy, management, and leadership. 

The course covers diverse topics such as political behaviour, Maltese constitutional development, European policy-making, political leadership, foreign policy, and world politics. Students engage in original research, culminating in a dissertation that contributes to existing literature. The curriculum has evolved to integrate local and international perspectives, fostering a comprehensive understanding of political dynamics.

Among the graduates were Vice Mayor of Bormla Noyah Spiteri Hammett, who thanked her late mother following her achievement. Sergio Carbonaro, a familiar voice on local airwaves, too graduated in the course, writing ‘never say never to acquiring B.A Honours’ as he posed with his certificate and toga.

Today Is A Stain On Malta’s Education Says Roberta Metsola

Today Is A Stain On Malta's Education Says Roberta Metsola
Nov 27 2023 Share

European Parliament President Roberta Metsola took to social media to address the strikes undertaken by educators in Malta, saying today is a stain on our country’s education due to what led to this moment. 

‘The biggest victims of the government’s hard-headedness are our teachers. With them, students and parents suffer as well’. 

‘Instead of finding a solution, the government closed door to educators. Instead of keeping its word, the government offended them. This is nothing but bullying by the Prime Minister with thousands of teachers who everyday greet thousands of students in Maltese and Gozitan schools.’

Metsola expressed her solidarity with the teachers and students and appealed for the government to stop stomping its legs and instead to sit down around a discussion table with good intentions to fulfil promises made, invest in education and offer a proper future for our teachers.
