School is always changing! People who visit schools after some years would notice that there has been big changes. Well, this scholastic year we added the vocational subjects: Hospitality; XL Programme; Beauty and Personal Care. These courses are preparing students for their future life outside the school where they would practice all skills learned and attained during such courses. We wish well to all our students.
This Beauty and Personal care 2 year course entails 4 lessons per week. Students sit for an exam at the end of each scholastic year. Syllabus is divided into two major topics: design process in makeup and personal and beauty care.
In the first topic, students are taught about applying makeup according to different face shapes, using different tonalities of colours, day and evening makeup. Second topic includes skin disorders, basic home treatments, four main skin types, healthy eating and healthy living, caring for the skin using cosmetics and products and embellishing the beauty salon with minimum cost.
During lessons students are not only taught the theoretical aspects but they do hands on activities, participate in discussions, learn from each others’ experiences and watch video tutorials.
Teachers involved are Ms M Said, Ms L Azzopardi, Ms E Azzopardi and Ms P Lucia.
