On Tuesday 29th April 2014 the school embarked on a Marathon Walk. The children had been given sponsor sheets with the aim of collecting funds for the school council.
This Marathon Walk was linked to Science Fieldwork which was co-ordinated by the science teacher, Ms Charmaine Mifsud, together with the class teachers.
Year 3 to year 6 students were stopped at Dingli, near the football pitch. From there they walked approximately 4km to Buskett. On arriving at Buskett the students were given a 30 minute break, followed by a 45 minute field work session. Students learnt about various leaves, temperature readings in the shade and in the sun light, insects and other interesting things related to Science and Technology. The students then walked back to Dingli, following a shorter route. The students covered another 3.7km in 45 minutes.
The Kinder 1 to Year 2 students were dropped at Buskett. They had their fieldwork which was adapted by the class teachers according to their age. Ms Portelli and Ms Schembri joined us in the venture to give an extra helping hand.
Well done to the students and members of staff for making this yet another successful event. The school takes the opportunity to thank all parents for this noble cause.
