€5 million investment of new school for the benefit of Marsaskala residents

Students of the Marsakala kindergarten and primary school will from next scholastic year start using a new school which is being built with an investment of €5 million. Foundation of Tomorrow’s Schools chief executive, Mario Gafa’, said that work on the school is at an advanced stage and when it is completed, it will also serve the needs of the Marsaxkala community.

In September, around 500 students are expected to use the new school which, according to Mr Gafa’, is dearly needed by Marsaskala residents due to the locality’s population increase – one of the localities with a young population.

Engineer Gafa’ said: “the school will have a centre for child care; a kindergarten and a primary from Year 1 to Year 5; that is parents who have children of varying ages may attend the school”.

Work on a parking lot taking 50 cars has been completed and may be used by the locality’s residents when the school is not open.

He added that discussions are ongoing between the Government and the Church on the potential use of church land behind the school. The idea is that the Church donates the land, while the foundation builds a parish centre.

Engineer Gafa’ said that the Foundation for Tomorrow’s Schools is implementing other projects, including at Imsida and Rabat Gozo, and schools’ extensions at Sta. Lucija, Zebbug and Rabat.
