Food Options
Lunch: 

All our lunches offer a varied and balanced diet with options and preferences for all students.

Students are offered lunch either whilst out on activity or at the School between Monday to Friday. At school students are offered a variety of either hot or cold lunches depending on the day. The options may include fresh salads, cold pastas, chicken, different bread varieties and more. Whilst out on activity students will be given the option of choosing their own lunch from a number of different internationally branded food outlets as well as some of Malta’s most iconic restaurants and food stalls.  

Special dietary requirements may be accommodated subject to availability and a weekly fee.

Water
Temperatures in Malta during the summer are quite high; therefore students, need to drink plenty of water. Whilst water is provided during meals, students will be expected to buy bottled water at other times during activities and school. It is important to take this into account when evaluating the amount of pocket money needed.

Programme Information
First Day: 

On the first Monday of the course, students are picked up by the private EC bus from EC’s adult centre in St Julians at 7:15. They will take a placement test in order to assess their level of English language proficiency and to place them in the appropriate class for their level.

Students will receive their Welcome Pack on the first day of school. The Welcome Pack contains an activity programme, timetable and a welcome letter which includes QR codes to access a virtual student handbook and an EC bus stop map.

After lunch, students who have booked to attend the activity programme will be taken directly to afternoon activities. Following the afternoon activity, students will be returned by the private EC bus to join their family. 


After school and a hot lunch, students who are not attending activities will be taken back to the EC adult centre.

Activities are organised on days when there are no trips and during the evenings, these activities take place either on-site or near the centre. These may include:
  • Sports such as football, mini Olympics, rounders, table tennis, volleyball and basketball
  • Daytime activities such as scavenger hunts and drama workshops
  • Evening activities such as karaoke, talent show and team games
Getting to and From School Activities :

  • The Day Programme can be booked with or without activities. For those students who would like to join activities, a private EC bus service takes students to and from activities.
