Dinja Waħda projects are activities dearly loved by our students. Ms Rodgers, assistant head, works with students to raise environmental awareness and the importance of preserving nature and wild life.

Today we mixed some compost with our garden soil to sow flowering plant seeds namely, Stephanotis, Mirabilis (Hummej) and Farfugium Japonicum (Galletti) among others. The kids had great fun digging, watering and getting their hands dirty. Following these sessions, one can only hope that a little green seed has been sown in each child’s heart which may one day flourish into a passion for the Earth, gardening and a global environmental awareness.

The Green Club students, together with Ms Rodgers, assistant head, have been taking care of the school garden. They have planted flowers in the front garden to make the school more welcoming. They have sewn papaya seeds and hopefully we might have papaya trees growing in our school garden. All this work is related to Dinja Waħda projects.
As tradition has it, the school is once again embarking on Dinja Waħda projects. Once again we are aiming for gold… not for the sake of getting a gold award, but to make sure that our students grow into responsible citizens who are aware of the importance of preserving the environment. Above students can be seen preparing decorations for the Dinja Waħda notice board.
Thanks to Ms Rodgers, Assistant Head, for taking care of this project.
Bird hunting, deforestation, burning down of forests, farming, the industrial revolution and other factors have a direct impact of the habitat of a number of animals. Trees are homes to birds, snakes, insects and many other creatures. When trees are cut down, the homes of these creatures vanish.
The year 4.1 students were made aware of these issues during another Dinja Waħda activity.
