PN MP with words of encouragement for students who failed MATSEC exams

PN MP with words of encouragement for students who failed MATSEC exams

Taking to social media, PN MP and teacher Justin Schembri wrote a few words of encouragement to all the students receiving their MATSEC results today. 

He started off by saying that it is reasonable and understandable that many parents and relatives will be taking to social media to congratulate their children for their academic success. 

However, ‘let us remember that there are hundreds of parents that are struck with tears seeing their own kids crying due to not having passed an exam (or more) and thus starting a summer of more studying and work.’

‘Let us be a shoulder to other parents and to those who were our class mates  during the scholastic year and encourage them as they face this challenge.’ 

‘The world isn’t just exams, and many, truly many, of those who are crying today, will also someday make it. And sometimes, they make it big. My heart goes out to all those who are crying today. COURAGE’ he concluded.

Hamrun set to face Armenian side at almost sold-out Centenary stadium this evening

Hamrun see to face Armenian side at almost sold-out Centenary stadium this evening

Ħamrun Spartans are set to host and face off against Armenia’s Alashkert at the Centenary Stadium this evening, hoping to progress further in the UEFA Europa Conference League. 

With a kick-off set for 8pm and a stadium packed and nearly sold out, the Spartans have returned to the field of European football last week after three decades since their last appearance. 

Coach Branko Nisevic is very positive about his team’s chances of turning the tide in Hamrun’s favour, despite a first-half goal defeat. Nisevic told Times of Malta that their objective in the first leg was to keep this tie open ahead of the second leg. 

‘The 1-0 defeat keeps all options open’ he said, as Hamrun prepare to resume where they finished last week in the second half of the game in Armenia. 

Despite registering more attacks than Alashkert in Armenia, the Maltese did not manage to get a single shot on target. The local team’s coach acknowledged that goals need to be scored if the team wishes to progress. This was a focus of their training following the match and he is positive that the playing style being developed will yield such net finds. 

Coach Nisevic also revealed that he has all players available except for Gozitan Stefan Cassar, who is sidelined with an injury as well as Moussa Sowe, who joined Spartans during the summer transfer window.
