Christmas Biscuits

The K1.2 and K1.3 students of Ms Joanne Galea and Ms Josianne Camilleri prepared some fantastic biscuits in preparation for Christmas.


The students were given time to roll out the dough and decorate their biscuits. This cookery lesson served to teach the students a number of fine motor skills and food handling techniques.


Very delicious biscuits indeed 🙂

St Nicholas Day 2014

St Nicholas is the patron saint protector of our College. The feast of St Nicholas falls on 6th December. Since this year the 6th happened to be a Saturday, the college organised a special event for students from the various schools of our college on 5th December 2014.

The celebrations began with a the celebration of Holy Mass at Mgarr Parish Church. A short procession with the statue of St Nicholas followed. Out year 3 students who assisted the priest during mass has the opportunity to carry this statue.

A short programme followed at our school. Our year 6 students sang the college hymn. A surprise for the students followed… The Ekklesia Sisters visited the school and sang a number of Christmas carols to the enthused audience.

Finally Santa Claus himself distributed a goodie bag to all the students present for this event.


A Social Event for Parents

A Brunch was organised by the School Council for parents and relatives on 12th December.The weather landed itself perfectly for this event. Those present enjoyed their brunch in the veranda at Ta’ Soldi on a beautiful sunny morning.


During the event the parents had the opportunity to socialise, while helping the school to raise funds. The funds raised will be used to purchase more big books for our students.

Thank you for your constant support. Special thanks goes to Ms Rose Schembri, Ms Angela Portelli and Ms Rose Griscti, members of the School Council for finding the time and energy to organise these events 🙂

Teddy Bear Hospital for kinder students…

Hospital01The Malta Medical Students Association visited our school to organise an activity with our Kinder pupils.  The pupils were introduced to medical equipment such as the stetoscope and temperature and were encouraged to use it on their teddy bears.  The aim of this activity was to familiarize pupils with the medical equipment used by the medical doctor.


Later on the pupils were shown hand washing techniques.  The pupils were helped to wash their hands properly to get rid of germs which were represented by glitter!!! The MMSA students took ample time to help our pupils wash their hands properly.

Robin Feeder…

The Kinder 1.2 students of Ms Joanne Galea are working in full force for the Dinja Waħda project. A few days ago the students were informed about the migration of robins and they made a beautiful collage.


Ms Galea took this activity one step further. She made a robin feeder using a sieve (thus recycling material). This feeder was then hung in the school garden under one of our trees. Some pieces of apple were left in the feeder for birds to find food.

Believe it or not., when Ms Galea finished the lesson, a robin visited her class and stood on the windowsill. The children were so happy to see this robin 🙂

Maths Workshops for Year 1 students…

Math01On 3rd December 2014, the year 1 students of Ms Marilyn Bugeja and Ms Louise Cutajar, together with their LSAs, Ms Josephine Galea and Ms Anna Cassar had a great day fun packed with maths workshops.

These workshops were coordinated by Ms Joanne Vella, Maths Support Teacher. The workshops consisted of a number of stations. In every station students participated in games which involved mathematical thinking skills, reasoning skills and creative arts skills.


The students had a whale of a time and look forward for more. Thank you to all for making this yet another successful event for our students’ learning experience 🙂
