Today as part of the monthly meeting for parents organized at Dun Manwel Attard Young Adult Education Resource Centre, an informal meeting with Dr Justyne Caruana took place. All parents present were given the opportunity to question and discuss concerns about their sons and daughters. Main concerns were targeted at the way forward of our students once they terminate their attendance at the Centre.
Dr Justyne Caruana confirmed the parents’ understanding on already existing support services, upgrading and modifications that are taking place, and projects which are being processed at the moment, all targeting employability, independence and inclusion of persons with disability.
The parents were also informed about a data base which is being compiled. Information is collected on voluntary basis. Those who are interested or need further information are kindly requested to call 2590 3175. Ms.Mandy Buhagiar Policy Coordinator from the Education Department, Mr.George Said Zammit Director Student Services, and Ms.Wilma Ventura from Child Safety Services were also present.
The meeting was also addressed by Health and Safety Officers.
