As a leader in youth employment opportunities and part of Paragon Europe's mission to further engage with interns, on Tuesday 26th January 2016, Paragon Europe hosted the first student social event of the new year. The event took place at City Bar, Mosta from 18:00 onwards and was well attended with over 40 students present.
This event, being the first of many, aims to ease students into the Maltese culture and has proven to be a great way to welcome students to the island in a social environment where they can meet like-minded travellers, discuss their work placements and plans while in Malta, meet Paragon Europe staff and just enjoy the relaxed environment after a day in their new jobs. A free welcome drink was offered to all attendees and appetisers were served throughout the evening. Ice-breaking games were organised and played during the event and one lucky student won a free trekking activity to be used during the time of his stay.
These events are planned by Paragon Europe in collaboration with CET Leisure, our partners in providing sociocultural excursions and activities to students during their time in Malta. The students enjoyed being able to meet one another and share individual experiences, it was also a great initiative to encourage speaking in English since this is the only language students of many differing cultures can communicate in together.
Paragon Europe values its students and therefore will be planning many more events throughout the year. It is likely that a social event will be organised every week or two weeks depending on the amount of new arrivals so we look forward to welcoming you and seeing you at our next one.
