the author, Mr Gordon Pisani on behalf of the publishers, Professor George
Cassar and also speaker of Parliament Dr Anglu Farrugia, the Hon Minister of

remain a very memorable experience for our girls, considering that ours was the
only school invited for this launching. At the end of this activity, speaker Dr
Anglu Farrugia presented a set of interesting research books to Dr Vella headmaster,
and also encouraged the Head of school to send more students to visit the
parliament in the coming months. Dr Vella thanked Dr Farrugia for the
