Skolasajf 2022 was in operation from 11th July to 2nd September 2022. This year, the main theme for Skolasajf was governed by the slogan ‘Earth Heroes,Unite!’’. It was an invitation to everyone to join forces for a healthy environment and society. It was also an opportunity to inspire children to be citizens who care about their community and the environment that they live in.
The Skolasajf 2022 applications were open between 23rd March and 2nd May 2022. Applications were accepted online at https://services.fes.gov.mt/, as well as in the servizz.gov hubs. The online system facilitates the application process, where one can choose the location of the preferred centre and make an online payment.
The Skolasajf service was given from State Primary Schools and from the 5 Resource Centres, around Malta and Gozo. It was run for eight weeks from Monday to Friday. The service in mainstream schools was 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.
The work to make the Skolasajf service run smoothly started in earnest from months before. In fact, February 2022 saw the opening of the Skolasajf Job Vacancies. Skolasajf workers were instrumental in the implementation of the Skolasajf Programme.
The activities as presented in the Programme Manual brought to the attention of the Skolasajf 2022 participants, a number of sub-themes that helped to explore the main theme ‘Earth Heroes, Unite!’.
The main theme was complemented by the new Skolasajf logo, which was inspired by the winning design submitted by Naielle Formosa Cumbo in the Skolasajf Logo Competition. The competition rewarded the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd placed entries with prizes from Copyclub Live.
