A Community for All Students – Grupp Studenti Maltin

Posted On April 21, 2020

In August 2019, a discussion forum for students was created online with the aim of having a space in which students at any educational level can share their ideas and opinions with regard to their educational experiences. This project, called Grupp Studenti Maltin, is still alive and kicking today.

We often here politicians say how students and youth are the future of our country. With this in mind, Bradley Cachia, a student, attempted to kickstart this project to try and give students a voice to ensure that the future is truly theirs. This project started off as a Facebook group (www.facebook.com/groups/gruppstudentimaltin) and it quickly caught people’s attention.

The Facebook group is now made up of about 1,300 members of every educational level and it has made its rounds on the media as well. The ideas that emerge from the discussions held between students in this group, especially in times of certain crisis or reform such as the ones we are going through right now, are not swept under the carpet. These ideas are forwarded to the stakeholders concerned to ensure that the decisions made are as compromised as possible.

This project, therefore, does not only give students a chance to have their voices heard, but also the opportunity for them to learn how to have constructive debates and how to express their ideas in a safe environment. Student organisations are also invited to be part of this project. They can do so by posting their news and updates on Grupp Studenti Maltin’s platforms. The aim with this is to expose students to these organisations and encourage them to be active students rather than passive one.

Just a few days ago, a website was also set up for Grupp Studenti Maltin (www.gruppstudentimaltin.wordpress.com). The aim of the website is to publish news that concerns students and the educational sector in Malta and Gozo. This website also provides a space in which students themselves can write articles, even anonymously, about anything which concerns their educational experiences. Students are encouraged to send in their articles by email to gsm-malta@email.com

Grupp Studenti Maltin continues to aim toward growing into a movement which promotes student activism and participation by reaching out to as many students as possible.
