Aqra Aktar… A new scheme to encourage reading

A very interesting scheme has been officially launched by BDL and the National Literacy Agency with the aim of encouraging students to read more books. The Minister of Education, the Honourable Evarist Bartolo, attended the ceremony.

The Kindergarten students welcomed the Minister of Education in the school foyer with a lively song and then presented him with a painting that was prepared by the students themselves under the guidance of Ms Joanne Galea, Kindergarten Assistant.

The year 3 students sang the song, Books Are Fun, followed by a  play, Il-Gost tal-Qari prepared by the year 2.1 students of Ms Janice Vella Muscat. Later a new book written and illustrated by Ms Angele Haber, Learning Support Assistant, was presented to the school. BDL representatives, sponsoring this new scheme, explained that students will be given a one euro voucher for a every library book they read. These vouchers can be exchanged for books at any BDL outlet.

The school would like to extend its gratitude to Mr David Muscat, Chairperson of the National Literacy Agency, for choosing our school to launch this new scheme.

Nurturing the School Garden

Green Club students, under the tutelage of Ms Rodgers, assistant head, came up with an interesting initiative held during Parents’ Day. The Green Club students sold smoothies and papaya seeds. Apart from promoting a healthy lifestyle, the students made use of the proceeds to purchase seeds and pots to nurture the school’ s front garden. Flowers and other seedlings have been sewn in the soil and/or pots. The school now boasts of a colourful front garden. Well done to the Green Club students for this initiative 🙂

Working with the Elderly at Mgarr

Wasteserv invited our school to participate in an environmental awareness event held at the Mgarr Day Centre.

The year 6 together students, accompanied by Ms Rodgers, Assistant Head, visited this Day Centre. 

Students mingled with the old folk and asking them about reducing, reusing and recycling in the old days. The students enjoyed chatting with the elderly while learning more about their elderly. The elderly were very pleased to be visited by our young students and willingly shared information.
