26th February 2014 was a day to remember for our year 6 students. The Honorable Dr Godfrey Farrugia, Minister for Health, visited our school and was a pioneer in promoting a healthy lifestyle among our students and members of staff.


This event was organised by the Local Council of Mgarr and the Health Promotion Unit who liaised with the school to make this event a success.


The year 6 students were introduced to the Minister for Health by Mr Paul Vella, mayor of Mgarr Local Council. Dr Farrugia, introduced himself to the students and expressed his gratitude for having been invited to share this experience with them.


Dr Charmaine Gauci, Director for Health Promotion and Disease Preventition, together with her teams of professionals, organised a workshop for our students.

The session kicked off with some warm up and stretching exercises, emphasising the need for exercise required by our body on a daily basis. A brief dicussion about breakfast followed. The students were then introduced to varying fruit and vegetables which were sorted according to colour. Finally the students prepared fruit kebabs with fruit  which was kindly provided by the Local Council.

The students and members of staff would like to express their heart felt thanks to the Minister for Health, the Health Promotion Unit and the Local Council for this opportunity 😉

Safety at Sea

boat01Ms Joanne Galea of K1.3 has been teaching her students about safety at sea. She introduced the topic to the children by bringing life jackets and a rescue ring. The students had the opportunity to role play a boat trip.


The students wore a life jacket and they drove on a boat in a scenario created by the KGA in the school gym.


As a follow up the students painted life jackets and boats. They also made a model of a boat which was later displayed on the corridor notice board.

Keep up the good work 😉

Literacy at a very early stage…

On 17th February 2014 I had the opportunity to visit the Kinder 1.4 class of Ms Janice. Although at such a tender age, the children’s independence and eagerness to learn struck me immediately.


Students revised recognition of letters done so far in Maltese namely a, b, ċ, d, e and f. The KGA then introduced the letter ġ. The students enjoyed finding the letters corresponding to items which begin with that particular letter.

As a follow up activity the children had fun painting a big slice of cheese and a mouse. Thank you for sharing this experience with us 🙂

Transport… Aeroplanes… Counting is fun!

Seldom are the moments when I can really appreciate what goes on at school in our classrooms. Today I had the opportunity to visit Ms Joanne and her students of K1.3 during their morning routine.


The first thing that captured my attention was the way the students gathered round their KGA to sing their morning prayer and their “Good Morning” salute. The children joined in an action song about transport, since this is the topic being covered at present.

Seeing the children’s faces when a beautiful repetoire of aeroplane models was displayed in the classroom was something to remember. But the cherry on the cake was when their KGA, Ms Joanne, transformed into a pilot who took the children for a journey on a old aeroplane wearing a warm hat, scarf and goggles.


After zooming around the class in her aeroplane, the children were invited to “Malta’s airport”. The children had to prepare aeroplanes for take off depending on the number being shown. Finally the children were inivited to go out in the school yard and fly their own aeroplanes.

To complement this activity the students used finger painting techniques to draw the circular motion of the aeroplane’s propellor.

I thank the staff for sharing such moments with me. Well done Ms Joanne 🙂

Coffee Morning and Karaoke for Parents
