The State’s summer school programme are still set to commence on July 1, Education Minister Owen Bonnici confirmed on Tuesday, admitting however the number of applications have decrease significantly. 

Fielding journalists’ questions during an online press briefing, Bonnici reaffirmed the government’s summer school programme would start on July 1, as planned prior to the coronavirus outbreak. 

Malta’s schools and universities have been shut since mid-March, days after the island registered its first COVID-19 cases. National exams have also been postponed to September. 

Despite this, plans for summer school to re-open in July have not been impacted, though details on the measures that will be taken to ensure both students and educators are safe have yet to be unveiled. 

Bonnici said he will be announcing these details closer to the date when the school gates are set to re-open. 

According to the minister, however, the number of students that have signed up for the summer programme has gone down significantly when compared to previous years. 

Around this time last year, some 10,000 students had been enrolled in the programme. This year, only 3,000 applications have been received so far. 

Bonnici said that the decrease in numbers will not impact the plans and those who wish to attend summer school will be able to do so. 

The education authorities, he pointed out, are working closely with their counterparts in health in order to ensure everybody’s safety. 


教育部长Owen Bonnici周二证实,政府的暑期学校计划仍将在7月1日开始。但同时,他也承认今年申请数量已大幅度减少。 

Bonnici在一次在线新闻发布会上回答记者问题时重申,政府的暑期学校计划将7月1日开始,按照冠状病毒爆发之前制定的计划进行。 

自3月中旬以来,岛上登记了第一批COVID-19病例数天后,马耳他的学校和大学就关闭了。全国考试也已推迟到9月份。 

尽管如此,暑期学校在7月重新开放的计划并未受到影响,目前尚未公布有关确保学生和教职员工安全的防控措施细节。 

Bonnici说,他将在学校开学前宣布相关细节。 

然而,据Bonnici部长称,与前几年相比,今年已报名参加暑期课程的学生人数大幅度减少。 

去年大约这个时候,已有10,000名学生申请参加暑期学校计划。今年到目前为止,收到了3,000份申请。 

Bonnici说,人数的减少不会影响该计划,那些希望参加暑期学校的人都可以来参加。 

他指出,教育当局正在与卫生部门密切合作,以确保每个人的安全。 


Funds for university research

Earlier, Bonnici announced the government would be handing the University of Malta funds to increase the number of research projects it conducts.

A total of 11 new projects will be receiving around €55,000 each. 

Rector Alfred Vella said that some studies related to COVID-19 are underway. These, however, do not involve research into a possible vaccine, he said. 


马耳他大学研究经费

早些时候,Bonnici宣布政府将向马耳他大学提供资金,以增加其开展的研究项目的数量。

总共11个新项目将分别获得约55,000欧元。 

校长阿尔弗雷德·维拉(Alfred Vella)说,有关COVID-19的一些研究正在进行中。他说,这些都不涉及对COVID-19疫苗的研究。
