The education system in Malta is divided into three stages: the primary education for students between the ages of 5 and 11 years, the secondary education is for students between the ages of 11 and 16 years, and the tertiary from 16 years.
Parents are free to choose between state, church or private schools. Besides, boys and girls attend separate schools.
The school visit will give you an insight into the everyday life of the students and you will get the opportunity to talk to the students about possible differences and to ask about free time, hobbies, etc.
It’s customary to bring a small gift. Please notice that visits must be requested in advance. Transport to the school is not included in the duration of the visit.
