A fun-filled educational summer
Kids and teens who happen to be Heritage Malta student passport holders can enjoy a myriad of educational and entertaining activities throughout the summer months, as part of a programme drawn up by the education and outreach section, within the national agency for cultural heritage.
Om contrast with previous years, summer 2021’s activities will be held virtually via Zoom and there will be two sets of activities, one for those aged between 12 and 15 and another aimed at younger children. Activities for 12-15 year olds consist of seven sessions, in a series named ‘Leħħiet fuq l-Istorja’, where Heritage Malta experts will trace the history of the Maltese Islands from prehistoric times, up to Malta’s accession to the European Union. Each session will be 45 minutes long, and will include a 20 minute animation, a short discussion and even some time for questions and answers.
The sessions will cost €5 and will be held once every fortnight in Maltese. A maximum of 15 participants can take part every time and those who register for the whole package of seven sessions will receive a super gift!
Activities for the younger children will be more craft-based. There’ll be five sessions in all, with themes ranging from mosaics to heraldry, textiles, marine life and the ‘Masterpieces at MUŻA’ exhibition. Some of the sessions will be held in Maltese, others will be held in English and each session costs €5 each.
Along with the two sets of activities, three competitions will be organised for students this summer, one per month in July, August and September. The competitions will revolve around photography, essay writing and drawing.
