Government eyes new Junior College

The government will have to start planning to build a new Junior College of the same size of the current one because of the rapid increase in students following post-secondary courses, the prime minister said today.

Dr Gonzi toured the Junior College in Msida this morning and met lecturers and students.

There are currently 3,000 students at the Junior College.

Dr Gonzi said that within the space of a few years, the number of young people opting for post-secondary courses had jumped from 43% to 80% and the government wanted to raise this further.

"In the same way as we build a school a year,  we will plan for a new Junior College," Dr Gonzi said.
