UPDATE (2): Teacher attacked at school

A teacher has been attacked at St Margaret’s College, known as Verdala, in Cospicua.

This incident has been confirmed to tvm.com.mt by the Police.

The Education Ministry said in a statement that a person attacked an official in a state school. It added that the official had been given the necessary support, and a report had been filed with the Police.

The Ministry deplored these violent acts, and called on the authorities to take all possible necessary steps at law against the individual involved.

In a statement the MUT condemned the aggression on the teacher and educators. Whilst stating that it is working closely with educators in the school where the incident occurred, the MUT added that this was unacceptable behaviour, and is symptomatic of the situation being faced by educators in the performance of their duties. It added that instead of being assisted to address the difficulties they face on a daily basis, educators are experiencing situations in which some parents are uncooperative, and instead of assisting educators so that the children work on their shortcomings,  blame the school and educators for the same shortcomings. The MUT reiterated its appeal for security measures at schools.
