A big well done to all that in some way or another contributed to this week’s Gardening with the Community activity! The garden is able to flourish from this first rain thanks to your efforts! We hope to see you again for more garden adventures soon!
On the 14th October 2016 we had an Open Day at our Resource Centre and also a Pink October activity. Mr N Agius, head of Resource Centre addressed this Open Day and talked about procedures and issues at our Resource Centre. Ms Rita Brincat, a breast cancer survivor spoke about this illness. Parents bought souvenirs in aid of the Pink October and also a Maltese ftira made by our staff and students. All parents showed participation and collaborated throughout the whole morning.
Dedicated to all students, staff, parents and carers and to all those who have, in any way, helped to make this scholastic year another successful one.
This video shows all Dinja Waħda activities that were carried out throughout this scholastic year 2015-2016. Well done to all students and staff who participated in this project.
The National Enterprise Support Awards are organised by the Commerce Department and the Enterprise Policy Directorate and Schemes within the Ministry for the Economy, Investment and Small Business. These Awards are not just a competition but are intended to foster more awareness of the importance of entrepreneurship both on a local and on a national level.
The Maria Regina College Dun Manwel Attard Young Adult Education Resource Centre presented the in-house sheltered workshop initiative in the category: Responsible and inclusive entrepreneurship. Such category recognises national and local initiatives by authorities or public/private partnerships that promote corporate social responsibility among small and medium sized enterprises. This category will also recognise efforts to promote entrepreneurship among disadvantaged groups such as the unemployed, especially long term unemployed, legal migrants, people with disability or people from ethnic minorities.
Our Centre was awarded this prestigious award for the first time. Like other initiatives in our Centre this award certifies the coherence of our Centre Policies with the actual Government Social and Economical policies vis-a-vis people with disabilities.
