Free Heritage Cards for Students

Heritage Malta would like to offer all students attending primary school (even those students who are currently in Year 6) a Heritage Card which will entitle the student to visit Heritage sites in Malta and Gozo free of charge even when the student is not on a school outing. This means that the students can visit the Heritage sites during their holidays and carry out any project work that has been assigned to them without incurring additional costs. Students will most probably need to present this card when they are on a school outing as well so please do encourage the parents to register their children.

Kindly log on the Heritage site portal at http://heritagemalta.org/student-membership/ so that you can register your child.
