As noted earlier this year, Mariam Albatool School is celebrating its 20th Anniversary since its inception in 1997. To commemorate this occasion Imam Mohammed ElSaadi together with the Board of Trustees hosted a dinner at the school hall.
The dinner was attended by Hon Carmelo Abela, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade Promotion and Former Prime Minister Dr Lawrence Gonzi. Attending were also numerous distinguished guests from the Ministry of Finance and from the Ministry of Education and Employment. Present were also Ms Maria Camilleri (former Head of School), Mr Kenneth Busuttil (Head of School) and Mr Brian Vassallo (Assistant Head of School) together with the school staff.
Before the dinner, Mr Muhammed El Sadi thanked Former Prime Minister Dr Lawrence Gonzi and Prime Minister Dr Joseph Muscat for continuous and unrelenting support to the school. He also thanked the distinguished guests for proving the necessary assistance for the school to continue to thrive and fulfill its mission and scope for which it was founded. Next, it was Hon Minister Carmelo Abela’s turn to deliver his speech. He stated that both government administrations have pledged their support to the school because they believed in its mission and in the unique educational model which the school professes. He iterated that the mission of the school is more prominent today since it embraces the changes the world is currently experiencing.
Guests were then invited to help themselves at the delicious dinner carefully prepared by Ms Elsadi. After the dinner, guests thanked Mr Elsadi for the dinner. It was a real pleasure for everybody experiencing the strong sense of unity and peace which dominated the whole atmosphere. A big thank you and well done to all!
Particular thanks go to Mr Alfred Scicluna for the organization and photographs.
