FTS completed two projects in the sports grounds at St. Theresa College Mrieħel Secondary School and at St. Benedict College Ħal Kirkop Primary School. These projects involved the laying of new synthetic turf in both facilities.

The aim of both projects was to improve the sports infrastructure of both schools, as well as for recreational purposes and to improve the level of sports education. This investment is being made in the background of the national policy to address obesity among children.

This investment is similar to a larger similar investment made in the past years in sports facilities at several schools, which investment reached around €850,000. FTS is currently investing approximately €20 million in a new sports complex within St. Thomas More College Secondary School at Santa Luċija and a new football ground within Giovanni Curmi Higher Secondary School at Naxxar. The new sports complex at Santa Luċija Secondary School will be completed by the beginning of the 2023-24 scholastic year, while the new football ground at the Naxxar Higher Secondary will be completed during the 2026-27 scholastic year.

The investment in the new synthetic turf at Mrieħel Secondary School and at Ħal Kirkop Primary School amounts to more than €100,000. These two facilities will be ready for the 2023-2024 scholastic year.
