Do not organise mass events, Church Schools told

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The Secretariat for Catholic Education has advised all Church Schools that in view of the latest coronavirus developments, they should avoid organising mass gatherings, especially indoor events. At this time of year in many schools, including Church Schools, fifth form students are organising prom nights to bid farewell to each other.

In these circumstances, the Director for Curriculum and Standards within the Secretariat for Catholic Education Ian Mifsud issued a statement to all Church Schools recommending that any such initiative should be discouraged and cancelled if already organised.

Savio College is amongst the schools advising parents to consult with their children to make the responsible decision and cancel the events.

Mifsud said that they sincerely empathise with these students and their wish to bid farewell to each other during school-leaving celebrations. However he expressed his hope that respect towards the individual and collective health and safety, prevail. 

The Secretariat for Catholic Education has also expressed its gratitude towards Health Authorities.
