Seeking New Horizons – Message from the Team January/16
2016 is the year in which SDM will beseeking new horizons by taking student representation to a whole new level. It is the start of a new term, and the new executive team and the committees spread across the University, MCAST, Junior College and Sir M.A. Refalo Gozo, have already started working on new projects and planning out all the events and campaigns of the upcoming year.
One of our main priorities this year is to continue broadening SDM’s official representation in Malta’s post-secondary schools. We believe that the next natural step for our organisation is toset up an official branch at the Giovanni Curmi Higher Secondaryin Naxxar. Although we do know that all forces are required to be dedicated towards this objective, we feel it is our duty to offer official representation to the students at Giovanni Curmi Higher Secondary. We sought the possibility of opening up at the Higher Secondary two years ago but unfortunately, we faced various difficulties to do so. This time, we believe this long desired project has all the potential to succeed.
Recently, we have also launched ‘Draw The Line‘, an Anti-Bullying Campaign, which is aiming to raise awareness through social media; gathering information on the matter through surveys and finally, producing a Policy Paper which is to be presented to the Government, the Opposition and all other concerning authorities. We believe it is our duty to use our resources to make a difference not only at an educational level, but also by giving something to society at large.
Finally, we invite everyone interested in getting involved and offering a helping hand to contact us through our page, or by approaching any executive member.
