Summary: U.S. Ambassador Molly Bordonaro paid a visit to Vittoriosa and Mqabba primary schools, where she witnessed the progress in language development by the children and their families.

Excerpt from Article

Mrs Bordonaro first visited Vittoriosa primary school, within St Margaret's College, where she was greeted by Frans Borg, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry for Education, Youth and Employment; Sandro Spiteri, college principal and head of the Malta Writing Programme; head of school Michelle Spiteri, and MWP coordinator Rachel Schembri.

The children and their parents also welcomed her warmly and she witnessed first-hand a writing workshop where children and parents tapped into their creativity and wrote together.

The Ambassador then viewed an exhibition which showcased the work of Year 5 students and highlighted the various stages of the writing process. Four children walked Mrs Bordonaro through their publications which focused on one particular writing on-site activity which was organised by the Vittoriosa Year 5 teachers in collaboration with MWP tutors.
