This was a great experience for the students. In fact one student told his teacher that this was the best outing ever. In the following sessions students will learn how to groom ponies and horses and how to take care of them.
They learned how to do these by means of a story, hands-on activities involving manipulatives like interlocking cubes, games and it was even integrated with physical education.

Heartfelt thanks to all the members of staff, parents and students for a wonderful Celebration Day. Team work is what makes our school a daily success 🙂
With all the modern technologies, the sending of Christmas cards is something, which our kids do not do often. That is why I decided to enroll on an e-twinning project with 6 foreign schools where we had to create Christmas cards and send them to each other.
Kids were excited in creating these cards. They were much even excited when we started receiving these Christmas cards. The kids learnt a lot from this activity as we noticed several things such as different stamps, cost to send a card, addresses to be written, how long it took to arrive to destination and how letters arrive from one destination to another.

The Kindergarten 2 students visited Mdina for a session of symbol literacy. The students walked around the Mdina ditch, followed by a lunch break. With their tummies full, the students entered the wall of the Silent City and were asked to find the door to the main entrance of the Cathedral Museum. Once inside the museum, the students had to find St Michael. Upon finding him, a story telling session and follow up activity kicked off. The students were prepared in advance about the character of St Michael.
