Since the National Sport School was established, we have all looked forward to the day when we would be able to produce an in-house Celebration Day. It was therefore with a particular sense of pride and achievement that we launched the evening, skilfully compered by Mr Sciberras and students Michela Zammit and Jethro Zammit Randich.
The highlight of the evening was Tini Nota, a musical journey of dance, drama and song through the decades which delighted many a parent!
The Hon. Minister of Education, Mr Evarist Bartolo, spoke about the achievement of high standards, the pitfalls of pampering and the risks of burnouts. He was followed by Mr Paul Stoner, the President of the School Council who spoke about the school’s objectives and standards. The Head of School Mr George Micallef gave an extensive overview of the school’s successes and its ambitious and pragmatic vision as laid out in the School Development Plan. He also spoke about the staff’s unstinting dedication and about the parents’ being key stakeholders. Alessia Cristina, the President of the Students’ Council ended the evening with an address.
