We are deeply saddened to announce the sudden passing of Mr Paul Borg; a greatly respected colleague, beloved friend, and inspiring teacher.

Everyone within the educational community at St Aloysius College and beyond is still incredulous at the sad reality that our friend and colleague, Paul Borg, has been taken away from us so soon. Apart from knowing Paul as a family man and a friend, most of us worked with him in the various roles he occupied throughout his career, namely as a teacher, as an Assistant Head and Head of Department of Economics within the Secretariat for Catholic Education. Throughout the years Paul has proved to be a real Man for Others, always ready to help and offer support when needed. Paul always showed an innate disposition to throw in a good word of advice when needed not to mention his ability to bring people together. He will surely be missed by us all but never forgotten. May God grant him eternal rest and provide his family with the support needed during such difficult times.

Edwin Ungaro   
Head of Secondary School

Paul Borg was one of the first persons to believe in inclusion at our College. Way back in 2004 when he was an Assistant Head he gave me loads of support and good advice. He was always ready to help, and a great example to many.  I will always remember him as a good man with a good heart. May he rest in peace.
