The Primary School

The Żejtun Primary School was inaugurated on the 11th June 1908, after the central Government commissioned Architect Ġużé Pace from Żabbar to make a plan for this school.  The school is built in the Neo-Classical style, with a substantial number of stone columns gracing the principal façade and the sides of the building.

Besides the kindergarten and primary school, this building also houses the public library, which is named after the writer and politician, Ġużeppi Pulis Montebello, who hailed from Żejtun.
