Pilot project in two state-middle schools

A series of meetings with the Directors for Curriculum, Lifelong Learning and Employability and for Educational Services led to an agreement for piloting an intra-curricular program with two middle schools. July 2019 saw the start of a series of meetings with Educational Officers of six selected topics and the heads of both schools, to start discussing the technicalities of the project.
The Pilot is now in its implementation phase and is expected to be mainstreamed in all middle schools in the future.
