The Church Schools Association (CSA) is saddened that the differences between the Board of Governors of St Albert the Great College and its Head, Mr Mario Mallia, could not be reconciled and led to the decision to end Mr Mallia’s tenure as Head of School. 

Notwithstanding the reasons for the dismissal of Mr Mallia, the Association wishes to acknowledge Mr Mallia’s valid contribution to the educational inclusion of disadvantaged students and of students from different backgrounds. He has always been looking for ways to improve the position of those less fortunate. The Association thanks Mr Mallia for his contribution to Church Schools over many years in caring for those less fortunate.

The Association of Church Schools strongly believes that Church Schools should continue to be led through the contribution of lay people and religious and diocesan priests together, as is the case in the majority of Church Schools.
