This year we are celebrating diversity. We live in a strange, but beautiful world… Full of hardships, yet full of satisfaction… Full of fear, yet full of hope… Surrounded by war… yet full of love…
We live in a world full of diversity which brings along many challenges. We have students who struggle at school academically, students who are not accepted because they are “different”, students who face language barriers, students of different cultures, ethnicity, religious beliefs, etc. It is very easy to forget the hardships these students face daily, in silence.
However, because we work as a team, we work hard to promote respect and diversity. Well done to all the members of staff and students for the fantastic performance and for spreading a message of “Respect for All”
To get into the Christmas Spirit, as a class, we prepared some tasty Christmas Logs. Not only was this fun for the students in preparation for Christmas, but eventually this activity will be linked to recipe writing 🙂
As a class, we decided to make a Secret Santa activity. Each student is given a name of another student in class. However, nobody knows what name the others have been given. The students have to act like Santa Claus by giving this mystery person something small as a surprise. A limit on the amount to be spent was established (not exceeding €3). The aim of the activity is to appreciate small gifts and to emphasize that it is the thought that matters. By doing so we would also be spreading friendship and love – linking it to Religion by emphasizing the true meaning of Christmas. The students wanted the class teacher to participate as well 🙂
Now we’ll find out who our Secret Santa is during the Christmas Party on Thursday!
The students, together with Ms Rodgers, assistant head, have been busy preparing the back drop scenery for Celebration Day 2016. We look forward to see the end result. Thank you to our hardworking students and members of staff.
The Yr 1.1 students of Ms Louise Cutajar have been cooking some healthy snacks. First they cooked pizza in a bun and they chose their own preferred toppings. Then they prepared a healthy fruit salad to complete their lunch.
