This fourth Volume comcludes the first one hundred years of the history of St Aloysius’ College, that is, frm 1965 to 2007. The year 2007 was its Centenary Year. With its 470 pages, including a detailed index, this volume may seem to be rather lengthy. It could not be otherwise for it covers a period of 42 hectic years packed with so many gripping events that every page soon appears to be justified. Among these events figures prominently the Private/Church Schools crisis (1971-85), an episode told with clarity and detail. But there are also the stories of the newly-established Sixth Form, the formation of the Parent-Teacher Association, the ever energetic Cylo, the constant though silent work of the Old Aloysians Association, the staunch drive of the College Scoumts, and the expansion of the College not only by the addition of the new premises for the Sixth Form and of the Sports Complex abut also by its resumption of a primary section. Several past members of the Staff are remembered in their obituaries. The story of the Jesuit Paulo Freire Institute brings to a close the Fourth Volume.
All this is worth recording and will be certainly received with pleasure by all those interested in the history of education in Malta particularly by the thousands of Old Aloysians who would look back with nostalgia at their old school.
The author has received glowing praise and gratitude for the previous three volume. This fourth one will certainly not disappoint.
