Message from the Head of School
I am pleased that I was appointed as Head of such a good school. I have been an assistant head in this school for 5 years and know exactly what are the strengths and weaknesses of the school. With the help of my assistant heads, Ms J. Abela, Mr S. Sillato, Mr. J. Vella and Ms. M.J. Camilleri I am going to continue to focus on quality teaching to all our students. All of us at Gozo College Boys' Secondary aim and strive towards the holistic education of the students under our care. We want to give a quality education that stimulates each student to develop his maximum potential.
Nowadays, the world of work expects the students to be able to continue with the development of their skills and abilities after they leave school. We want to give our students those skills and abilities that makes them capable and enable them for such demands of life long learning.
We want to make the 5 year stay that the students spend in our school a memorable one, also enriched with positive and moral values. I believe that the school is the second home for the student. Therefore they should be proud to belong and form part of such a welcoming school. As I have already pointed out, I am proud to form part of this home. All the staff at Gozo College Boys' Secondary have this at their heart. Moreover, you students and parents, our stakeholders, can help us achieve our goals for the benefit of all and can support our efforts.
Dr. Francis Abela.
