Aid needed for English teaching project
On January 21, 2005 there was the inauguration of Centru
Tbexbix (Sunrise Centre) a community educational cum social
service project in Cospicua. One of the programmes housed at the
centre is Sunrise English Club, aimed at children and adults willing
to improve their English language skills.
The first phase of the programme, having a duration of three
months, will start in March and will be aimed at children between
nine and 13 years of age, The second phase will incorporate children
between five and eight years of age.
Members of the Sunrise English club will be required to attend
two weekly sessions. One of the sessions will consist of a collective
indoor or outdoor activity for all members, eg. drama, music/singing,
cooperative games, video, etc, with English as the medium.
In the second session the pupils will be split into very small
groups (between two and four) and they will be given specific
support in the skills in which they are lacking, by five trained
tutors who have offered their time and expertise freely. The programme
is targeted at children from low-income families, and in fact
the fee for the whole three-month semester is Lm5, with the possibility
of this being waived in special cases.
We are looking for sponsors to donate the following resources:
TV and DVD player
A number of dedicated volunteers have laboured tirelessly to
transform the two-storey dilapidated building in St Lazarus Street,
Cospicua, into a decent place to house this education project.
Those who were present at the inauguration were all impressed.
We now appeal to the generosity of local business and individuals
to consolidate our efforts and help us materialise this programme
which is meant to instil in children a positive attitude to learning
