Students have an overall positive and tolerant views towards integration and inclusion

first_img SharePrint Maltese Primary and Secondary School students have an overall positive, open and tolerant views towards foreign children and intercultural integration and inclusion. However, the data also suggests that a substantial minority of students are still hesitant and / or resistant towards integration. It was found that in such instances students, would prefer assimilation and in some instances separation.This emerged from a research report entitled A Passage to Malta – The Health and Wellbeing of Foreign Children in Malta was published by the Centre for Resilience and Socio-Emotional Health in collaboration with the Commissioner for Children. The report delves into the health, wellbeing, education and inclusion of foreign children living in Malta.The project consisted of four studies with about 2500 foreign and Maltese children, making use of both quantitative and qualitative research designs. On the basis of the findings, the report makes various recommendations for action to enhance the wellbeing, quality of life and social inclusion of foreign children in Malta whilst addressing prejudice and discrimination amongst the future Maltese generation.One of the topics, the study delves into, is the attitude of Maltese students towards foreign children, which shows an overall positive views. It was also found that primary school students, female students, students in state and/or independent schools, students with non-Maltese children in their neighbourhood and in their classroom/school and students from particular regions, are more likely to be in favour of cultural diversity and interculturalism.The study however found that social interactions with foreign children are still limited overall. About one half of Maltese students have a number of non-Maltese friends, with one in five students reporting that there are about the same amount of people who are Maltese and non-Maltese living in their neighbourhood and in their classrooms.The attitude of Maltese students to foreign students vary according to the nationality of foreign students, the study has found. The majority prefer peers from Western Europe, North America and Australia, followed by Latin America. The least liked, according to the findings, are children from the Maghreb, the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa, with an apparent prejudice being registered against children from these regions. The study also showed that the students have mixed views about children from East Europe, ex-Soviet Union and East Asia. However students from independent schools and in primary schools have more positive views of foreign children, while those from Gozo have the least positive views.Interculturalism and integrationThe indications show, that a majority of Maltese students are against the segregation of foreign students in school and out of school activities. A majority of the students hold positive attitudes about interculturalism, agreeing that the Maltese should accept people from different countries to live in Malta, should help foreigners preserve their culture and should learn about customs and traditions of foreign people living in Malta. Students also agree that other foreign parents should help their children to practice native culture.One fourth to one third of the students appear to be cautious or against full integration of foreigners in Malta. It was found that the positive attitudes are more common in primary schools and decrease from Year 6 to Year 10 in Secondary schools.WhatsApp <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img read more

STAR PREVIEW Crystal Palace v Spurs

first_imgPROFIT/LOSS SINCE JAN 1 2017: PROFIT 177.84 points(not including Premier League ante-post, or cricket) This has been a rough month for both Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur. Palace are in the middle of an incredibly long run of fixtures against the country’s elite; their last four games have been Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton and Wolves; their next two are Tottenham and Manchester United.Tottenham are coming towards the end of a run which has seen five games crammed in 13 days, and to give due credit – they have only lost one of those games, to league leaders Manchester City. In midweek they kept their Champions League hopes going with a last-gasp win against PSV when the scoreline didn’t tell the whole story. Harry Kane forced them over the line, but they had 10 shots on target to the visitors 4 and 7 more shots off target to one for the visitors, along with 16 corners to 6 for PSV.Their 3-2 win at Wolves was a very taking result anyway given the strength of the promoted side, and it’s worth remembering that before two late penalties, they were in control against one of the best non-top six sides in the division then – following on from a fine win against West Ham.Pochettino’s had a lot of scrutiny about the squad available to him but he’s managed them incredibly well through the last fortnight and Harry Kane can be supported by Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Lucas Moura, and Heung-min Son – hardly a foursome that lacks real power or panache.That explains why they are 5/6 to win at Selhurst Park, but things are rarely that easy for visiting sides here. Two members of the top six have come here and Palace deserved their draw against Arsenal just two weeks ago and they pushed Liverpool harder than a 2-0 defeat suggested. Indeed, they didn’t lose a single game against the Top 6 by more than one game last season.That suggests there could be value in taking Tottenham on, but they have lost four of their last five games and backers of Spurs could be rewarded by a narrow winning margin – the last five meetings have ended 1-0.Crystal Palace v TottenhamPremier League, 17:30BT Sport 1 HD / UHDHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)FEB 2018 PREMIER LEAGUE Crystal Palace 0-1 TottenhamNOV 2017 PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham 1-0 Crystal PalaceAPR 2017 PREMIER LEAGUE Crystal Palace 0-1 TottenhamAUG 2016 PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham 1-0 Crystal PalaceFEB 2016 FA CUP Tottenham 0-1 Crystal PalaceJAN 2016 PREMIER LEAGUE Crystal Palace 1`-3 TottenhamSEP 2015 PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham 1-0 Crystal PalaceJAN 2015 PREMIER LEAGUE Crystal Palace 2-1 TottenhamDEC 2014 PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham 0-0 Crystal PalaceJAN 2014 PREMIER LEAGUE Tottenham 2-0 Crystal PalaceIt’s also interesting to note that during their run of the tough games, it has taken a fair amount of time for sides to get past Palace. It took Wolves 56 minutes to get past them, it took 88 minutes for Everton, and Chelsea went in just 1-0 up at Stamford Bridge last week. In all three of those games, there were more goals in the second half than the first half and that would not surprise here. Tottenham have also been strong at the finish of their recent games – their last three have seen more goals after the half.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-100 points)BACK SECOND HALF MOST GOALS 5 points at evens with starsports.betlast_img
