THE CONSULATE GENERAL OF MALTA TO CANADA

DONATES BOOKS AND EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS TO THE

MELITA SOCCER CLUB LIBRARY

 

The Consulate General of Malta to Canada has recently donated books and educational materials to the Melita Soccer Club Library, one of Toronto’s oldest Maltese Canadian Libraries.  The Melita Soccer Club is presently the oldest Maltese Canadian Club in all of Canada established in 1963. Today the Melita Soccer Team, also known as Canucks participated in soccer matches in Toronto and participate in the very popular annual match between the Melita Soccer Team and the Maltese American team based in the Tri-State Area in New York.

 

The over 200 books and educational materials are primarily publications, exercise textbooks, CDs, colouring books, lithographs, CDs and DVDs to learn the Maltese language, the history of the Maltese Islands, Malta and Gozo’s Diaspora worldwide, publications about Malta, Gozo, education, commerce, archaeology, culture and religion.

 

The Consulate General of Malta to Canada compiled these publications from an array of Malta Government Ministries, agencies, institutions, banks, chambers and companies.  Mostly donated by Heritage Malta, the University of Malta, Arts Council Malta, Malta Enterprise, the Malta Films Commission and the Ministry for Foreign & European Affairs.

 

While presenting the donation to the Melita Soccer Club Secretary, Ms Mary Ann Piscopo, the Consul General of Malta to Canada, Dr Raymond C. Xerri encourage the committee to use these publications and educational materials to attract, teach and transmit Malta’s rich identity, heritage, culture and history.  Go ahead and entice Maltese Canadian youths to want to learn of their origins and ancestry - Malta and Gozo can open new doors of opportunities, a whole new world for Maltese Canadian youths in areas of education, commerce and entrepreneurship where their dreams can come through.” Secretary Piscopo thanked Dr Xerri for this donation and all the initiative he is taken to bring together the Maltese Canadian community, especially the youth.
