During a brief ceremony at the Ministry for Gozo, the Minister for Gozo Justyne Caruana and the Prime Minister’s wife Mrs Michelle Muscat, presented participation certificates to two hundred young students from the Gozo College.
Six designs produced by the students were selected in a competition held in November on the theme of – Freedom and Peace at Christmas – as the official Christmas card sent out by the Prime Minister and Mrs Muscat, including to the leaders of foreign countries.
This is the fourth year the official Christmas card has been selected through a competition for children or other people from different areas of society.
During the visit Minister Caruana and Mrs Muscat chatted with the children. Mrs Muscat said that once it was decided to give the opportunity to children attending primary schools to design this year’s official card, they then decided to choose Gozitan primary students.
She also mentioned that in previous years the card has been designed by children with autism and people who have gone through drug rehabilitation programmes.
