His Excellency Dr.George Abela, President of Malta visited our Resource Centre on April 14th accompanied by Mr. M Testa (College Principal), Dr. G Borg (Director Special & Inclusive Network), Ms. M Vella (Service Manager Special & Inclusive Network) as well as Mr. A Galea (Head of Resource Centre).
His visit started from the foyer where he first met the members of the Council. He later proceeded to the newly functional and refurbished Vocational Units where he met students working with their teachers aided by specialised LSAs. The President was impressed with the work produced by our students and in fact his visit lasted much longer than planned.
Dr. George Abela also visited the Centre’s renowned ‘Holy Week Exhibition’ that each year attracts visitors and many school children. Before leaving the premises, he addressed our delighted students in the Centre’s main reception area and thanked them for making his visit an enjoyable and wonderful experience. A healthy food hamper, pencil drawing and a vase of flowers made of papercraft (all students’ work) were presented to the President who was overjoyed. In turn, he also donated books to the Centre. Students were also given the unique opportunity to take pictures next to the Maltese President.
