Hey, sports lovers! Some great news in the sporting department as St Aloysius College’s Sports Complex that is home to not only its student-athletes but others too, is expected to get some TLC and expansion works done!

St Aloysius College and Vassallo Group, through its subsidiary company Learning Works Limited – a company providing education and training – have reached an agreement regarding the renovation, modernisation, and expansion of the College’s Sports Complex.

Learning Works will develop and operate a new private college specializing in sports which will be named the Mediterranean College of Sport (MCS). The new sports college will provide various sports facilities, including a new football ground, swimming pool, various gymnasia,  and a new sports science centre, all of which will be served by underground parking. Hot dang!

Both students attending St Aloysius College and the Mediterranean College of Sport will be able to benefit from the latest state-of-the-art facilities. After school hours, the Complex will also be open to sport organisations and the general public.

The new plan also comprises extensive renovations and upgrading of existing facilities pertaining to the current Sports Complex, such as the Sports Pavilion (a large indoor hall designed for handball, basketball and other sports), the gymnasium, cafeteria, and more.

“As a result of this agreement, not only will we be seeing to the required maintenance and works related to existing facilities built around twenty-five years ago, but creating a much larger and overall more prestigious sports complex,” Fr Jimmy Bartolo SJ, the College’s Rector shared. “I am particularly proud of the fact that we will be able to do so while remaining true to our College’s vision and mission, and that we have invested in sports as key to the holistic and inclusive education that we provide.”

Mr Pio Vassallo, Chairman of Vassallo Group, Learning Works’ Chairman, as well as St Aloysius College alumnus said: “We are extremely excited and proud of this initiative as it is part of our mission to have a positive impact on society. We believe that education and sports play a crucial role in society, and this project will help nurture this positive impact further. We will therefore invest the Group’s various resources and skills in creating a unique sports complex for Malta, for the benefit and enjoyment of many students and the general public. My involvement in this project gives me great personal satisfaction as it will be of immense benefit to the College responsible for my own education.”

Works are expected to take place over two years, once the application has been duly approved by the Planning Authority. St Aloysius College and Vassallo Group will work hand-in-hand to complete the project in the least time possible, with minimal inconvenience to students, teachers, and neighbours.
