It was a pleasure for us to be holding an information meeting this morning at Mariam Albatool School. During the meeting a number important themes were discussed. Mr Brian Vassallo (Assistant Head of School spoke about the changes envisaged in the benchmark examination for the upcoming years. Also, access arrangements for children with special needs were discussed with parents. Then the session proceeded by another presentation by Mr Vassallo who spoke in detail about PIRLS (Progress in International Literacy Survey) -an international test being held next year. Later a questionnaire was distributed to parents as part of an ongoing evaluation which the school administration undergoes to determine the future goals of the school. The session proceeded by a very interesting presentation on the use of tablets by Ms Marthese Borda who is an Education Specialist on the subject. The meeting was coordinated by Ms Debbie Atanasio (Assistant Head of School). Mr Kenneth Busuttil (HoS) attended this informative meeting and answered any queries arising from the floor. Particular thanks go to the parents who expressed their satisfaction at the high level of commitment shown by all staff at Mariam Albatool School. A big well done to all !
