Heritage Malta (HM) has teamed up with the Ministry for Education and Employment (MEDE) in offering a new educational programme that will reach more than 9,000 students in the 2019-2020 academic year, according to a press statement issued by the government’s Department of Information (DOI). The programme was launched at the Malta National Community Art Museum (MUŻA).

The educational project will cover 25 thematic activities, involving students from kindergarten to post-secondary level. Students will tackle history, maths, Maltese grammar and literature, physical activity and drama. Some HM curators will deliver outreach programmes in schools including didactic resources and interactive workbooks.

“We hope that this multidisciplinary approach will show students and parents that museums are inclusive, accessible to everyone, and so much more than just historical sites,” said Mario Cutajar, Heritage Malta’s executive director.
