20St Thomas More College Zejtun Primary A Zejtun Primary School was built by the British while they were in Malta. It was designed in the neo-classical style, according to the plan of a Maltese architect towards the beginning of the 20th century. Regarding architecture, this is one of Malta’s finest schools and it served as a hospital for British Servicemen in the Second World War.
21Originally, the school was named after the priest Dun Alwig Camilleri. The school was officially opened on the 11th June The present building houses both Zejtun Primary A and Zejtun Primary B. Extension works were carried out between 1955 and 1956 and 22 classes were added to the school. A Kindergarten section was built near the school in 1987, and was later enlarged in 1999, by adding 4 more classrooms and a playground. Nowadays both Zejtun Primary A and Zejtun Primary B are part of St Thomas More College.
22The school building comprises Administration offices, classes, a resource room to help children achieve a higher level of oracy and literacy skills in English and Maltese, a clinic used by several professionals like the school nurse, the Speech and Language Pathologist, the school Counsellor and also a community library which opens twice weekly.The school has two yards which are used by students during recreation, for P.E. activities and other educational and religious functions. Surrounding the school premises is a garden which is tended daily.
23School enhances children’s interest towards areas of joy and fulfillment such as craft, drama, music, P.E, science, art, ICT where Peripatetic teachers are an asset in this matter. All the staff in our school do their utmost to provide the pupils with an education of an assured quality within a caring community in which all individuals irrespective of circumstances and situations , are given opportunities to develop their full potential. Students attending Primary A are aged between 3 and 7-8 years of age, i.e. from Kindergarten 1 to Year 3.
