Some of the Primary schools within the Gozo College recently had the opportunity to work with the Sannat Youth Centre to create a number of greeting cards for persons undergoing corrective measures at the Kordin Facility
This initiative was part of the P.S.D. (Personal and Social Development) lesson on the subject of ‘Valuing Others,’ in which students were guided to understand that all people are valuable and precious; everyone has something positive to offer even though s/he behaved inadequately.The students used all their creative skills in making the colourful and imaginative greeting cards, which were left blank inside so that the inmates can use them for whichever occasion they may choose.
The greetings cards were presented by P.S.D. teachers, Ms. Karen Borg and Ms. Jacqueline Camilleri, to representatives from Sannat Youth Centre, among them Ms. Mary Mifsud, who is responsible for this group.
This presentation was held last Sunday during an activity which the same group organised in aid of Fondazzjoni Rise. The cards will be presented to the inmates next time the Sannat Youth Group visits the prison.
The teachers said that “this initiative proved to be of great educational value for the students who participated. They did their utmost in creating and designing the cards knowing that they could be of great benefit to the inmates and their families.”
During P.S.D. lessons the participating students have the opportunity to develop various personal and social skills and values to become active and responsible citizens.
