Malta Public Transport launched a new design for the ‘tallinja’ child card, during an award ceremony for the Tallinja Drawing Competition, which was held at St Benedict College in Zurrieq.

The competition, which was compered by comedy duo Danusan, was won by Anthea Mamo, who was chosen from 400 school-children entries around Malta and Gozo, aged between five and ten.

The winner was “very happy that her drawing was to feature on the new tallinja child card, as her parents looked on proudly”, said Malta Public Transport.

The young girl also won a variety of prizes, including a year of free bus travel, an art set, a Maxi Micro Scooter and a 3D printer for the school she attends.

St Benedict College’s headmaster, Paul Sammut remarked that it was a pleasure to host the event, during which students were rewarded “for their artistic abilities”.

Two runner-up prizes were also awarded to Faye Galea from St Dorothy’s School in Zebbug and Kirsten Azzopardi from St Joseph’s School in Blata l-Bajda, said the company. They also won Maxi Micro Scooters and 3D printers for their schools.

Commercial director, Daniel Grech, thanked the children and their schools for their collaboration and added that the company was “overwhelmbed by the large number of students who participated”.

The company went on to announce their Road Safety Trip campaign, which involves children travelling on board a bus and participating in an “interactive presentation on road safety”.

The first 3,000 primary school students to participate, as well as apply for the card through their school, will recieve free new tallinja child cards, said Malta Public Transport.
