Spiro Mizzi Foun­da­tion re­fur­bishes rooms at Par­rocca Katek­izmu San Lawrenz, Birgu

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Last month, Fr Joe Mizzi and Chev. Mau­rice Mizzi, on be­half of the Spiro Mizzi Foun­da­tion, cel­e­brated the launch of two very im­por­tant recre­ational rooms for the stu­dents of the Cen­tru tal-Katek­izmu Par­rocca San Lawrenz in Birgu. The cen­tre is very im­por­tant to the com­mu­nity of Birgu, as it pro­vides chil­dren with a place of wor­ship, re­cre­ation and sense of be­long­ing af­ter a day at school.

Be­ing such an im­por­tant cen­tre in the three cities, The Spiro Mizzi Foun­da­tion be­lieved that it was im­per­a­tive to in­vest in the class­rooms to en­hance the ex­pe­ri­ence of the chil­dren and al­low them to grow pos­i­tively. The Foun­da­tion in­vested a to­tal of €8,500 in the re­fur­bish­ment of two im­por­tant recre­ational rooms − Kamra tat-talb and Kamra ghall-adoloxxenti.

The two new rooms pro­vide the chil­dren with a holis­tic ex­pe­ri­ence that fo­cuses on re­li­gious, so­cial, hu­man­is­tic, ed­u­ca­tional as well as cul­tural val­ues that in turn help th­ese chil­dren grow spir­i­tu­ally, men­tally and phys­i­cally. It is an ed­u­ca­tion cen­tre where th­ese chil­dren can ex­pe­ri­ence a true sense of be­long­ing.

The lat­est tech­no­log­i­cal equip­ment has been in­stalled in both the newly re­fur­bished rooms, to en­cour­age chil­dren to in­ter­act and en­gage dur­ing classes.

Fr Mizzi thanked Chev. Mizzi and The Spiro Mizzi Foun­da­tion for the gen­er­ous sup­port given to the chil­dren and con­tin­ued by stat­ing: “It is a bless­ing to find gen­er­ous in­di­vid­u­als who are ready to sup­port the fu­ture and growth of our chil­dren.” The Par­rocca Katek­izmu San Lawrenz in Birgu cur­rently has 130 chil­dren at­tend­ing its classes ev­ery af­ter­noon and en­joy­ing the two newly re­fur­bished state-of-the-art rooms. More­over, 30 teenagers have also started to use the re­fur­bished class­rooms.

The Spiro Mizzi Foun­da­tion is a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion in Malta. The foun­da­tion was set up by the pres­i­dent of the Mizzi Or­gan­i­sa­tion, Chev. Mizzi, to sup­port and honour the new gen­er­a­tions born and liv­ing in Cot­ton­era and the sur­round­ing har­bour area – the birth place of his late fa­ther, Spiri­done Mizzi. Chev. Mizzi set up the Spiro Mizzi Foun­da­tion to help less for­tu­nate chil­dren from this area ben­e­fit from the same op­por­tu­ni­ties other chil­dren may have in other parts of Malta in the aca­demic field.
