Ingrid Kidder interviews Carmel Azzopardi, Treasurer of the German-Maltese Circle, Lecturer at MCAST
...
I am a careful person and have learned to be patient", was one of the very first sentences uttered by Carmel Azzopardi, when we sat down for this interview. Adding: "I never start a discussion, but I can continue a discussion" - These words sum up the impression that Carmel Azzopardi gives to those who meet him - a composed and amicable gentleman. And he explained that growing up with his four brothers and one sister formed him from early childhood, taught him respect and the necessity to share everything that life offered. With this he meant not only the tangible goods of every day's care, but also moods, pleasures and sorrows. He is of the firm opinion that the family nucleus and structure is one of the most important factors of well-being. In fact, he still lives in the same house in Dingli in which he was born, sharing it with his sister and one of the brothers.
Carmel Azzopardi was an early starter. His father, the blacksmith of Dingli, recognised his abilities and, already at the age of four-and-a-half sent him to the St. Joseph Sisters School. After a mere two years he was moved to the Primary School of his native village, straight into Standard 2, meaning that this six-and-a-half year old boy shared the same school benches with mates of approximately eleven to twelve years of age. He appeared not to be particularly happy reminiscing about this period of his life. Though good in subjects like Maths and English, he did not share the interests of the older boys, who, so he remembered, were mainly concerned with leaving school as soon as possible, something still very common in 1957.
Thereafter he sailed through Secondary School and eventually, in 1967, at the age of 16 he joined Malta Drydocks as an apprentice. As was practice then, after one year apprenticeship the next choice had to be made. Having the best results of seven candidates, he chose to become an engine fitter. During his apprenticeship he attended courses at the Malta College of Arts Science and Technology, which was also referred to as "Polytechnic", and which existed in this form from 1964 to 1981. He successfully concluded his course and apprenticeship there in 1971 with the "Higher Technician Diploma". He had worked for three years as engine fitter "afloat", i.e. repairing ship machinery and auxiliaries on board ships coming into the dry docks, when his life took a major turn:
