The National Readathon Celebration Ceremony (Qaritona)

The first National Readathon was organised by the National Literacy Agency and the President’s Trust under the patronage of Her Excellency Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca. This initiative was also supported by the National Schools Support Service and Re/Max Malta. 

Alexander Ceesay, from St Nicholas College, Mgarr Primary School, was the student who collected most money during this first edition of Qaritona out of the 22 participating schools. In honour of this, an apple tree was planted in the Secret Garden at Sant Anton Palace. The aim of this marathon was to raise funds for students with special needs related to blindness, while promoting a love for reading among students who participated in this readathon.

Show and Tell

The Year 3.1 students were given the opportunity to share some information with the class about something which they really like to do or someone/something they like/love.  Some students prepared a PowerPoint Presentation, others made posters and charts.  Many students talked and brought their pet to school whilst many others talked about their favourite toy/s.  Another student talked about sports cars as he likes to read and know everything there is about these cars.  Someone else talked to us about the activities and outings organised by the Mellieħa Scout Group.   I really enjoyed listening to each and everyone of you!  Well done!
