After the successful Vocal Master Class workshops under the tutelage of Ms Miriam Gauci last week, yesterday (Monday 4th April) saw the start of the Educational Programme which will cater for Gozo College students and schools.
A fiery and highly animated String quartet from Spain called Galdos, entertained the Years 4, 5, and 6 GC Nadur Primary students during a 45 minute session in the Nadur Primary school hall.
The students enjoyed the show and the musical pieces played. Galdos surely left with a very good impression of the students since they had a very good musical knowledge as they fully collaborated with the group when prompted and asked.
The Educational Programme is a Gaulitana: Festival of Music 2016 initiative in collaboration with the Gozo College and the project is fully funded by the education+ scheme within the Ministry for Education & Employment.
Gozo College has recently acquired the services of a school coach which will be transporting students and various staff in between locations and venues in Gozo.
Here the coach is seen making it’s first maiden voyage with pupils from GC San Lawrenz Primary.
For bookings and more information call the Transport Section on 25986884
Monday the 22nd February saw the Launch of the NSTF Science Days 2016 which took place in the Gozo College Boys’ Secondary School’s foyer.
Mr Cristian Żammit, Chief of Staff for the Minister for Gozo, Mr Francis Stivala, NSTF Director, Mr Victor Galea, Gozo College Principal, Mr Lelio Spiteri and Dr Frank Abela (Heads of School) and various students and teachers were all present during this launch.
This will open the door for the Official Opening on Tuesday the 1st of March were various projects from all the schools of Gozo will be exhibited.
Mr Francis Stivala said that, “This is the 3rd consecutive year that the Science Days is taking place in Gozo. The over 300 submissions from pupils and students indicate the interest in science amongst Gozitan families since most of the projects submitted were done at home”
Mr Victor Galea added “The Science days in Gozo helps in raising awareness about scientific topics. Pupils are expressing their learned knowledge and skills through drawings and paintings, photos, experiments and construction of mini-scale models.”
Furthermore Mr Galea informed that Gozo College state Schools invested 20% of their budget in science kits to be used by students. This is one way to present science as an interesting subject which involves hands on activity.
LGBTI+ Gozo is a Non-Governmental Organisation made up of active young adults, who work on a voluntary basis. LGBTI+ Gozo has been working very hard over the past few months to establish a grounded and well developed organisation for all youths in Gozo, especially those in sexual minorities, and it strives to create a community of young adults, teens and adults and to provide a secure and safe place where one feels a sense of belonging. We create events both that promote informal education, inclusion, involvement, health and which raise awareness about various issues in society.
On the 27th February we will be holding one of our “Better Together Seminars” called “Sexuality and Kids”. One of our main aims for this event is to expand the knowledge of teachers, guidance teachers and parents alike about Sexuality in children. This seminar will be headed by Mr. Matthew Bartolo, a Sex and Relationship Counselling Therapist and Mr. Steve Libreri, a Social Worker and Parenting Coach.
