Varjinġa Primary School Closes Its Doors After 170 Years
Jun 27 2024 Share

The Gozo College Rabat Primary School, known as Varjinġa, closes its doors today, with headmaster Lelio Spiteri posting a touching message in tribute of the school.

With the school relocating premises for the new scholastic year, Lelio, known as the ‘Happy School’ headmaster, wrote how for the last time he will meet his students for the last year like a family in a courtyard that saw thousands of pupils and teachers.

‘I’m afraid of being unable to finish this morning’s assembly’, he wrote. ‘I salute all the educators of the school’s history who gave their heart to our school.’

‘After today, the courtyard falls silent. But the walls will remain evidence of a family which found shelter, hope, love and opportunities to grow.’

The work created by Thomas Taylor in 1997, when he was only 23-years old, was expected to be sold in the region of $400,000 – $600,000. Those expectations were however shattered with the piece ultimately being sold for a staggering $1.9 million.

This is not the first time that Taylor’s artwork was sold at an auction as in 2001, when only 4 books of the series were published, the work was sold for $108,500 a far cry from the insane $1.9 million it garnered in 2024.
