In an attempt to enable all government schools in Malta to achieve the same teaching standards, 23 teachers from the Govanni Curmi Higher Secondary School (GCHSS) will be transferred to other schools wherein teachers have been struggling to keep up with their workloads.
This transfer will not impact the GCHSS students’ education and the remaining 144 teachers will be more than enough to fulfill the students’ needs and curriculum, the education ministry ensures.
Before receiving an official deployment notice, the respective teachers will be informed in person and have the full picture given to them.
The ministry clarified and reassures parents and students that, contrary to hearsay, the Govanni Curmi Higher Secondary will not be closing down.
In fact, the ministry expressed that it is focused on further strengthening all the government schools and educational programs such as Govanni Curmi Higher Secondary School, Sir MikielAnġ Refalo Sixth Form school, and MCAST, as well as others.
“I is the priority of the Ministry of Education to provide our children with the best possible education and the best opportunities that can be provided and this change reflects this ongoing work in the education sector,” said the ministry.
