Students and teachers at the Ħamrun Secondary School will, from the next scholastic year, be able to cross from a building to another with more comfort and less wasted time.
This is the result of a project by the Foundation for Tomorrow’s Schools which will avoid that students have to descend the first floor in order to cross to the other side of the school.
Despite that the scholastic year has not yet ended, the Foundation started the work on the building of a bridge that will connect the two buildings of the San Ġorgġ Preca Secondary School in Ħamrun, known also as the Lyceum.
The half a million euro project will be completed by the beginning of the next scholastic year.
The school’s head, Dorianne Portanier Mifsud, said that the project is of great benefit to the school. “The fact that we start the year with the bridge, it means that students and teachers will attend lessons in time due to less time for them to move from a lesson to another”.
Ms Portanier Mifsud added that the need for the bridge has been long felt, while work on the project is moving steadily.
