Profile: Gozo College Għajnsielem Primary School was inaugurated in September 1965 and is visible by all visitors to Gozo proceeding up the road from Mgarr Harbour. The present school was built on a wide open area and in subsequent years parts of it were taken over by the then Posts Department, now Maltapost, the Art School now MCAST Gozo Centre. It still boasts a large yard and a small garden.
On the 10th of June 2016 we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the opening of the school. Present for this ceremony were the Hon. Dr. Anton Refalo, Minister for Gozo, Archpriest Dun Frankie Bajada, Ghajnsielem Mayor Franco Ciangura, other guests, parents, staff and all students participated.
Before this present school was built, schooling was given in three separate locations, namely in a part leased from the Friars College in St. Anthony Street, in a house in Hamri Street as well as in a large building known as the old school in the same street, now occupied by foreign residents.
