End Of Year Celebration

St Martin’s College Sixth Form recently organised its annual end-of-year celebration. Throughout the evening, the College marked the end of the students’ two-year programme of studies, and awarded special prizes and certificates to a number of students. This year, the ceremony was particularly significant since the College is celebrating its 10th year anniversary.

Luke Calleja, Santana Bellerby and Valeriya Lakhtikova delivered the speeches on behalf of the students. They highlighted the significance of the event and explained the importance of the choices they will now have to face.

Throughout his speech, Mr Anthony Abela, Senior Leader Sixth Form, focused on the various dimensions of success. He also underlined the value of the tailored learning opportunity that the College offers its students and referred to the various events, competitions and trips abroad that the students engaged in throughout the course of their studies.

Ms Bernie Mizzi, Director of Chiswick House School and St Martin’s College, presented certificates to all the students in the presence of their families, friends and College staff.
