Signs that KSJC are Working Towards Inclusivity

Posted On March 3, 2020

KSJC, Kunsill Studenti Junior College will be organising a FREE sign language course by a professional interpreter in collaboration with Dorianne Callus and Agenzija Sapport.

In this year’s agenda one of the main points was the aspect of inclusion and involvement on campus especially for those in minority. Following this year’s electoral manifesto, “Stronger Together”, one of the most striking proposals was “Pulse in KSJC will ensure further inclusion by offering Sign Language Courses.” Junior College students are very lucky to have the opportunity to get the basic knowledge in sign language as it is important to learn various skills apart from the academic syllabus.

According to The Malta Independent (2019), Evarist Bartolo, Minister for Education and Employment mentioned that there are more than 200 students who are either visually and hearing impaired attending either government, church or private schools. Bartolo also mentioned that at the University of Malta, a total of 23 students are hearing-impaired.

Apart from this sign language course to ensure inclusivity in our society, this year’s eight hard working candidates are working as well on green policies such as the use of travel mugs to reduce cups, tree planting and schemes for cleaner air around the campus.

This event will be held on the 11th March 2020 at 14:30 at Junior College. If you are interested, kindly contact either Erika Mallia or Mikela Cassar to book your place. It is surely not to be missed.
