The Year 1 students of Ms Marilyn Bugeja have been learning about the importance of preserving the natural habitats of creatures that live in Malta. During one of the session the students got to know better the hedgehog. Knowing that the hedgehogs are decreasing in numbers for various reasons, including the destruction of their natural habitat due to the building industry, or being killed and run over by cars, the students pledged to be more careful in preserving the environment.
The Kindergarten students have been learning about the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling. Students were asked to bring some of the trash gathered at home. All the trash provided was placed in the school yard and the students had to sort the trash. The trash will e used to make murals and other crafts at school.
Way back in January the K1.1 students of Ms Joanne Galea and K2.1 students of Ms Nagaat Bugeja embarked on a interesting project, that of growing a vegetable garden in the school’s front garden. Click here to see phase 1 of this project.

The students enjoyed harvesting their crops. Peas have grown strongly in their pods and students enjoyed popping the pods for a wonderful surprise. Potatoes where unearthed using a hoe with the help of their Kindergarten Assistants. Students learn by doing 🙂
Celebrating Earth Day might seem futile to many, but this should not be the case. We have a duty to preserve mother Earth from the greed of mankind. Earth must be preserved for generations to come. Education is the best way to win this fight.

The students wore costumes representing various aspects of earth, including trees, flowers, lightning, the sun, etc. Climate change is among one of the hardest battles to handle.

Tourists applauded this great cause and locals appreciated the students’ initiative. May our youngster flourish into mature adults showing respect to towards nature.
The Maths Support Team organised a national event in our locality, ‘X’hemm l-Imgarr’. The students of Yr 6.2 were paired with the students of Hamrun Primary in order to solve and carry out different experiments and activities. All activities were related to Science and Maths, such as finding the ideal material to use in order to have clean water, and cracking the code through letters.
The students really enjoyed themselves. The students were also given the opportunity to visit the shelter under ‘Tal-Barri’ restaurant.

The above are photos taken during a cookery lesson held by the Yr 1.2 teacher. The students had to cut the pastry to form their own biscuits. These were baked in the oven. Finally the children decorated the biscuits and later wrapped them in Easter bags to give as a gift to their parents and loved ones.
