Today, Judge Emeritus Joseph Zammit McKeon, the Ombudsman, made a two-hour tour of the Malta College for Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST) buildings and main Campus during Freshers’ Week. He was welcomed by the Deputy Principal for Administration, Mr Philip Vella, and the Director from the Office of the Principal, Dr Caroline Demarco.
The Deputy Principal informed the Ombudsman about the various projects and initiatives MCAST is undertaking to prepare students for working life.
During the visit, the Ombudsman viewed the new MCAST Resource Centre, which houses the library, auditorium, and working spaces for students, including those reserved for students with special needs.
He also visited the NGO area, where several Non-Governmental Organisations presented their work and their goals to promote community services among students. He engaged in discussions with the people at the numerous stands and encouraged all to persevere in their objectives for the benefit of Maltese society and the common good.
The Ombudsman concluded his visit at the Office of the Ombudsman stand, set up to engage with students and academics at MCAST. The Commissioner for Education, Chief Justice Emeritus Vincent De Gaetano, also visited the stand on Monday.
