Is there a break during Santa Maria’s week?
Skolasajf will be open throughout Santa Maria week; however, service will not be offered on the 15th August.

My child has an LSE during the scholastic year. Can I still apply?
Yes. Skolasajf is an inclusive summer school. FES provides the service of a child support worker (CSW), who will assist to the child’s individual needs. The service of a child support worker is against the Statementing Report Number at application level and the presentation of the Statementing Report, the Individual Educational Programme (IEP) and the Psychological Report. A copy of such documents is to be handed to the centre coordinator. The allocation of Child Support Workers (CSW) will be at the discretion of FES. Every case will be taken into consideration individually. 

How do I inform you that my child needs a CSW?
The Statementing Board Report Number needs to be written down on the application form. Failure to do so may result in the child not being allocated a CSW and/ or termination of service. All the necessary documents will need to be presented to the Centre Coordinator at the start of service.  

When and how shall I submit the requested documents?
The documents which are listed on the registration form are to be submitted to the Centre Coordinator either via email or at the centre. The Centre Coordinator will inform the parents via email how the documents are to be submitted. 

When parents’ meeting is to be held?
Every centre holds various parents’ meetings according to the centre’s capacity. Dates of meetings will be communicated by the centre coordinator via email. Parents’ meetings are held via an online platform such as Teams. Parents are encouraged to attend to such meetings. 

Do I have to provide stationery items for my child?
FES provides the vast majority of resources needed to carry out the activities at the centres. However, with the onset of the COVID measures, we ask the children to bring their own pencil case and colours ( ie the ones they use at school). At the beginning, the centres also issue a list that includes (but not limited to) a kitchen roll, a packet of wipes, tissues, and a large bottle of water and recyclable items to reuse in the activities. 

What is the dress code for Skolasajf?
Children are to wear light casual clothes, and closed shoes such as a running shoes which is not slippery for safety purposes.  

Is the fee refundable?
There is a cooling off period till 30th June 2022. No refunds will be affected after 30th June. 

Are there any other fees?
If you book your child/ren for extended hours of service. The service is offered to working parents only, and the fee is of €0.80 to the hour.

Can I apply in two centres?
Children cannot be registered in more than one centre. However, parents can ask for a transfer. It is at the discretion of the centre whether such transfer can be affected or not. We recommend  that children are enrolled in one centre since we believe that children benefit more if a good relationship with the staff and other children in their centre is established for the whole eight weeks of the Skolasajf programme.

How are children grouped?
Children are grouped according to the date of birth.  For smaller centres, children are grouped up to a maximum of two (2) years per class.

What activities will my child/ren be doing?
Children attending the Skolasajf programme engage in a structured programme of activities that range from arts and crafts, games and sports, amateur dramatics, storytelling and singing, and cookery. Such activities are based on the current Skolasjf theme.  There are also a number of educational activities, organised in collaboration with a number of stakeholders. Each activity is tailored according to the age group of the children. All activities will be according to the COVID-19 guidlines in force at the time.

What is the theme for Skolasajf 2022?
The theme for Skolasajf 2022 is ‘Earth heroes, Unite!'

Can the remaining balance of payment made during Klabb 3-16 in winter be carried forward to Skolasajf?
The remaining balance cannot be used to pay for the registration fee of Skolasajf. However,  it can be used during the extra hours of service in the afternoon. 

Will Skolasajf be following any measures related to COVID 19?
Skolasajf will be following the guidelines according to the specific setup of the Kindergarten and Primary school respectively and in line with other guidelines as issued from time to time by the Public Health Authorities.

Does Skolasajf organise transport?
The FES organises transport through MEDS for children attending Resource Centres. In case of centres which do not reach the required quota, FES retains the right not to open the centre. In such case, transport is also organised for parents who opt to send their children to another centre.

When will I know when FES decides which centres will not open for Skolasajf?
The FES decides which centres will not open for Skolasajf based on the number of registrations received for each centre. Parents will be notified of such decision after the closing date of the registrations.
