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

  •  A private EC bus service will take students to and from school and activities. Students will be picked up and dropped off at the EC adult centre in St. Julian's. Parents should ensure that their children are at the adult centre every morning for the bus.
  • 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.
