At Rabat, Malta, the primary school was located in two separate buildings. Through this project, the school was united in one building. This could be done by building a new floor over the whole school. The project also involved the re-construction of the old roofs within the building. This project was also intended to offer modern, accessible, and comfortable educational spaces for our children and educators. Therefore, the old building was extensively refurbished and transformed into a modern school suitable for today’s educational needs.
The new school has 33 classrooms, including classrooms for specific subjects such as art, music and Personal, Social and Career Development (PSCD). Ten classrooms are for kindergarten level. It also has an indoor gymnasium, outdoor recreation spaces, a multi-sensory room, an industrial kitchen, and a dining area for pupils that attend the ‘Breakfast Club’.
As part of the project we’ve installed new services, including new electricity, water and sewage services, security cameras, internet connectivity, alarms, and fire safety services. The school has new furniture aimed at encouraging teaching and learning inclusion.
In the building we’ve also introduced energy efficient measures such as wall insulation, double-glazed apertures, solar water heaters and photovoltaic panels.
The new school has a capacity of approximately 400 children and the project was carried out with a capital investment of approximately €3.5 million. The school welcomed its first pupils in September 2023.
