am Language Studio Students visit Malta Co-operative Federation

A number of students from the am Language Studio visited the Malta Co-operative Federation on the 28th March 2014.  Mr John Mallia and Mr Rolan Micallef Attard presented a number of videos and gave an overview of the international and local scenarios of the co-operative movement.

The students, who were accompanied by their teachers, asked a number of interesting questions to the President and the CEO of the Federation which covered various topics mainly related to the international seven principles, the future of the local co-operative movement in Malta and the differences between co-operative societies and other legal forms of business organisations.

    My students and I had the great opportunity to visit the Malta Co-operative Federation in Valletta in March 2014. Our students had learnt at school about the co-operative regulations in Italy, and so the Federation was the right place for them to learn more about the Maltese co-op system. The presentation was really interesting and capable of boosting the students' enthusiasm to think of setting up their own co-operative in the social sector. Many of the students mentioned the experience of the visit to the Malta Co-operative Federation during their final exams the following year. It has been for them an excellent way to find a bridge between their social and legal studies and the visible reality of co-operatives in another country. Many of those students are now attending University but still remember the precious detailed overview and useful advice Mr Rolan Micallef Attard and Mr John Mallia gave us on that occasion and remember it with pleasure when they occasionally drop in at school to see their old teachers. It was unforgettable! Let alone the warm, welcoming Maltese friendliness. Thousand thanks, really, from my students and from me, Maria (the teacher with light blue cardigan in the photos)
