Apart from the Malta Visual and Performing Arts School, the Mikiel Anton Vassalli College caters for over 4,000 registered learners who attend classes on a part-time basis, with students ranging from six to 92-year-olds.
The school itself has a specific focus to improve and coordinate the visual and performing art education in Malta and Gozo.
During a visit, Minister for Education Owen Bonnici was present for visual, performing arts and music lessons, and also held a meeting with the educators and staff of the college.
Minister Bonnici made reference to the importance of introducing the performing arts from an early stage. He said, “Through this school, we are offering young secondary school students another choice in their educational journey.”
