MUT commemorates its 100th anniversary

The Malta Union of Teachers (MUT) has commemorated its 100th anniversary with a new monument at the Mall in Floriana. The monument depicts a seated girl reading a book, with an open door in the background, symbolising the concept of an open mind with a thirst for education. The message from this monument is that education transforms a person and opens new doors. The monument is the work of artist Chris Ebejer and takes its place among several other monuments at the Mall garden in Floriana.

Union President Marco Bonnici stated that although the present situation is not normal, the inauguration of the monument has taken place in order to stress the union’s collective commitment to push the country towards normality. Bonnici recalled the Malta Union of Teachers is the oldest union in Malta, having been set up in 1919. The MUT President added that the monument symbolises the way in which students should remain at the centre of the union, adding that it is not by chance the figure in the monument is female, as the nine other historic monuments in the Mall are all males who had an important role in history.

President George Vella stated that teachers have a crucial role in society, as education is Malta’s only resource.
