On the 9th February 2017, Her Excellency Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, President of the Republic, paid an official visit to the GCHSS.

Her Excellency was welcomed by the  College Principal, the Head of School, members of the SMT , the School Council and members of the SRC.

The President toured the stands mounted by the various in-house students’ organisations in the foyer where she spent time with students manning the stands whilst they explained to her what was the aim of their respective organisation. She distributed certificates to members of the Photographic Club whilst stopping to see the Photographic Exhibition.

The President proceeded then to the Hall, where she was welcomed by a duo of violinists who played the National Anthem.  She then started to take questions from students in an almost one hour question-and-answer session. She touched upon a plethora of subjects such as immigration, diversity, and the danger of populism.

The visit came to end with the President visiting the Headmaster’s Office for a brief informal meeting with the SMT and College Principal.
