Minister for Education and Employment Owen Bonnici visited MCAST where he
was able to experience lectures being done remotely from the teacher’s and
students’ own homes following the decision to temporarily close all schools due
“I strongly welcome the commitment, dedication, and hard work being shown
by hundreds of educators to provide educational material to their students
using online means. These last few days have shown the strong and committed
professionalism of educators in such challenging times”, stated Minister Bonnici.
The minister strongly encouraged educators to continue with this process of
undertaking online teaching for their students. Educators can ask for support
regarding this directly through their schools or through the dedicated website
and helplines https://digitalliteracy.skola.edu.mt/.
Minister Bonnici sincerely thanked all educators for the exemplary manner
in which they are rising to the challenge of this unprecedented
situation. He also extended his appreciation to the IT staff supporting
this sudden wave of online learning, as well as cleaning and maintenance staff
who are taking all necessary measures for schools to welcome back educators and
students when this ordeal is over.
