St Martin’s College Sixth Form recently organised a Welcome Evening for over one hundred first-year students and their parents.
Mr Anthony Abela, Senior Leader Sixth Form, welcomed the students. In his speech, Mr Abela stressed the importance of hard work and grit throughout the two years at sixth form to ensure long-term success. The students and their parents were also addressed by Ms Julienne Restall, a second-year student. Ms Restall explained the importance of active participation in extra curricular activities and outlined her own experiences in the Junior Achievement Young Enterprise, her participation in the Euroscola programme in Strasbourg, the forthcoming school trip to Helsinki, Finland, as well as the Cambridge Immerse programme in the UK. Ms Restall participated in this programme as a result of a scholarship she was awarded by St Martin’s College Sixth Form.
Throughout the evening, the students and their parents also had the opportunity to meet members of the sixth form staff.
