5,200 students and 600 teachers from middle and secondary schools had the opportunity to visit the Public Service Expo24 held at the MFCC in Ta’ Qali, where students were able to closely observe the work of the public administration, engage in interesting activities, and even participate in competitions designed for them.

500 of these students came from Gozo, while the rest were from various schools from all corners of Malta, a government statement read.

Among the most interesting attractions were the indoor stands of the departments and entities, where many expressed a desire to join the public administration when they grow up.

Students could participate in physical activities, including an obstacle course and sports, as well as watch several shows, including those related to emergency rescues and demonstrations by various K9 units.

The Public Service Expo24 mascot, a retired customs dog named Sophie stole the students' hearts. Students were also given souvenir items and unique merchandise for the occasion.

Those who have not yet visited the Public Service Expo still have the chance to do so in the next two days - Saturday, 18 May, and Sunday, 19 May, from 10am to 4pm.

Entrance to the public is free and will be through the North Entrance of the MFCC, where a large space is allocated for parking.

Anyone seeking more information should follow the Public Service social media pages.
