Dear members of staff, parents, and guardians,

I would like to inform you of some changes which have taken place in our College Board.

Following ten years of dedicated leadership, Mr John Galdes will be stepping down from his position as chairperson of the Board. He has been replaced by Dr Charles Bonello.

Charles Bonello started his career as a physics teacher, teaching the subject at secondary and post-secondary level for twenty-nine years. He read for a PhD in Science Education at Sheffield University, UK. He is presently a senior lecturer in Science Education, and a member of the Department of Mathematics and Science Education within the Faculty of Education at the University of Malta. He is involved in initial teacher education for secondary school science and physics where he lectures in a number of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. He is also involved in teachers’ continuous professional development and delivers in-service courses to physics teachers. Charles regularly participates in international conferences and EU projects which aim at improving Science Education.

Dr Bonello has been working closely with the Jesuits for many years. He has recently finished a four-year part-time course in Ignatian Spirituality and Spiritual accompaniment.

While warmly welcoming Dr Charles Bonello to the College Board, we would like to sincerely thank Mr John Galdes for his invaluable support and direction as chairperson of the Board for the past ten years. College is deeply indebted to him. He was a faithful, generous, competent, unassuming, and wise chairperson who accompanied many important changes at College. He will remain one of the greatest benefactors of our College.

Best regards,

Fr Jimmy Bartolo sj

Communications Officer Administrator
Communications Officer - St Aloysius College Malta
