Discussion on teaching the subject of history in local schoolsA Memorandum of Understanding has been signed today between the Ministry for Education and Employment and the History Teachers’ Association.

During a meeting between the two sides, the Ministry said that it was agreed for further cooperation between them as well as creating new learning resources.

Discussions also covered the need to create more suitable resources for Primary students in order to raise awareness of history as a subject.

Both sides hailed the Heritage Malta Passport initiative, through which students and adults have the opportunity to visit Maltese historical sites, free of charge throughout the year.

The Ministry said that talks also looked at how teaching the subject of history in schools could be strengthened through training for teachers, modern teaching practices and new resources.

      Well done Hon Bartolo. I have always insisted & wrote that our students do not have a proper history book about our Maltese real history and not that of former Conquering Nations. It has been only lately that National awareness is being rightly though through T.V. Programs – Newspapers – Several Books by Maltese Authors.

      But in our Educational system at our schools still have the old History as written when under the British Rule.

      It is already late in initiating this so much needed National History Book. Also one has to amalgamate our National heritage also in these teachings, of which we are so rich and lucky to have.
