On Monday 23rd May, a Job Exposure Ceremony was held at Mosta Boys’ Secondary. During this occasion a number of students participating in the Job Exposure Scheme, together with Maria Regina College Form 4 students, received a certificate for the work and effort they have put in work placements carried out throughout this scholastic year. The JES is providing students with the opportunity to work in different workplace settings whilst developing valuable employability skills. Throughout these placements, students’ performance was very positive. This successful learning experience would not be possible without the kind cooperation of entities who year after year welcome us in their work environment. Their support is certainly providing a valuable experience for our students.

Sensed the crystal waters, peaceful silence and the roaming around unique unobstructed views and scattered ruins. We discovered that Comino was not only blue lagoon but a memorable group experience.
