​Skolasajf has once again opened its doors to thousands of children during the summer months of 2019. Guided by the main theme ‘My Travel Journal’, children were invited to spend their summer holidays on a journey of discovery of friendship, skills, and experiences.

This year Skolasajf ran between 15th July 2019 and 6th September 2019. Kinder children started their Skolasajf experience on 16th July 2019. The service ran for eight weeks from Monday to Friday, from 08:30 till 12:30 hours. An extended service for working parents was also offered in selected centres, from 07:00 till 08:30 and 12:30 till 17:30 hours. Parents were able to apply for the centre of their choice towards the end of March 2019.

The work to make the Skolasajf service run smoothly started in earnest from months before. In fact, February 2019 saw the opening of the Skolasajf Job Vacancies. Anyone who was interested to join the hundreds of part-time workers who opt for the various roles, applied via the link

This link took the applicant to the FES Recruitment portal, which presented the visitor with a list of all the available roles and the corresponding job descriptions. These included Regional Coordinators, Centre Coordinators, Playworker, Child Support Workers, and Sports Playworkers. One had also the opportunity to apply according to whether they wished to work in Malta or in Gozo, or in a Resource Centre. With the service being offered in nearly 60 centres, one surely found an opportunity to work.

These workers have been instrumental in the implementation of the Skolasajf Programme, which included a variety of centres-based activities and also outings, all tailored according to the age group of the children.

The centre based activities included classroom activities which were presented to the Playworkers and Child Support Workers in a detailed Programme Manual, which was followed in all the centres. Other centre based activities included participation by partners who visited the centres and organised activities according to their remit. The Sports Playworker were also busy putting in action the Healthy Lifestyle Programme that included a daily percentage of physical activity. Children were also treated to outings to various destinations that offered different experiences, such as cultural, historical, sportive, and civic education.​
