Heritage Malta has just launched the 2024 Student Summer Programme, promising a fun-filled and educational experience for young heritage enthusiasts.

Running from July to September, this year’s programme features 19 unique events centred around the theme of the sea. This being the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, the Agency is leveraging this annual event to increase awareness among the younger generation about the importance of safeguarding our oceans and seas.

Vanessa Ciantar, Assistant Manager of Heritage Malta’s Education and Outreach Department, explained how the programme’s events were carefully tailored to offer a vibrant exploration of various subjects and historical sites, ensuring a delightful experience for all participating students while making the best use of their Heritage Malta Student Passport this summer.

From a thrilling treasure hunt in Gozo’s Citadel museums and a dive into the world of corsairing through the eyes of a real Maltese boy who became a corsair, to saltwater sorcery in a distillation experiment at Fort St Angelo, exploring the origins of mermaids, unicorns and other legendary creatures at the National Museum of Natural History, and concocting historical ice cream at the Inquisitor’s Palace, we can confidently assure that adventure is on the horizon.

Heritage Malta’s CEO Noel Zammit expressed his wish to see every child in our country seize this golden opportunity to discover more about their people’s past and their land, while having fun. He stressed that this is the best way to foster the love and appreciation of our heritage in the youngest generations.

Each activity is conducted in a safe and controlled environment, adhering to all health and safety guidelines. The programme is open to Heritage Malta Student Passport holders, which can be obtained for free from all schools across Malta and Gozo. Spaces for each activity are limited, and parents are encouraged to book early to secure their child’s place.

The programme leaflet can be downloaded here:, and physical copies will be available in Heritage Malta museums and sites. For more information and to view more details on each event, visit
