On the 16th March 2012, the Grade 7 pupils attended a talk by Mr Mark Causon from Europe Direct Information Centre, Mosta on the European Union, focusing on the European Emergency Number 112. The children participated by joining in a song, a quiz about the European Emergency Number 112 and by asking several questions. The children also learnt how and when to use this number and the fact that one could use this number in all the 27 member states.
Towards the end of the talk, Mr Martin Bugelli Head of Delegation of the EU Representative Office in Malta, greeted the students and extended an invitation for them and their teachers to visit Dar l-Ewropa in Valletta, which houses the offices of the European Commission and the European Parliament.
The European Union is a topic covered in the Humanities programme of the Grade 7’s.
