The Malta Union of Teachers has the pleasure to unveil a monument celebrating the Union’s 100th Anniversary in an activity held Friday 6th December.
Entitled “L-edukazzjoni tittrasforma l-persuna u tiftaħ bibien ġodda”, the monument depicts a figure of a girl, seated, reading a book. Behind her is an open door, signifying an open mind through education. All around her are butterflies flying around, signifying wisdom.
The monument was created by local artist Chris Ebejer and will be permanently displayed at the Mall, Floriana. The site is very close to the San Ġorġ Preca College Floriana primary school, where the first meeting of the MUT had been held in 1919, and it is also a historical area which houses a considerable number of monuments.
This event was held under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Malta H.E. Dr George Vella.
