TIP – Teach, Inspire, Protect… An Erasmus+ Journey Begins…

The first transnational meeting of a new partnership in the project Teach, Inspire, Protect (TIP) kicked off with a tree planting event at Salina Nature Reserve.

All partners introduced themselves with presentations following a planning session with regards to the way forward with the project.

The second day was an intensive day during which intellectual outputs were discussed. The school would like to thank the Mayor, Mr Paul Vella, for taking our guests onsite at Ta’ Ħaġrat Temples in the beautiful locality of Mġarr.

Exchange of Good Practice with Czech Republic Teachers

The school hosted 16 teachers and their headmasters who came to Malta to learn about teaching in the Maltese Educational system.

Following an introduction by the head of school, Mrs Ferrante, the teachers visited a number of classrooms from Kinder 1 to Year 6.

The Czech Republic teachers enjoyed watching the lessons and were received with a very warm welcome in all the classrooms.

The visitors were given a taster of diverse lessons, inlcuding a maths lesson held in the school yard, and another using the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach.

The Czech Republic teachers were impressed with the ability of children, who, at a very young age, are very conversant in English.

The children welcomed these teachers and prepared various tokens which were presented to our guests.

The teachers commented about the fact that it is evident that in this school there is great teamwork and a very positive vibe.

The visitors enjoyed this experience and are looking forward to share more experiences with our school.

The Czech Republic teachers had the opportunity to observe a creative writing lesson which offered students the opportunity to work in groups to come up with a better write up.

Finally, they were given the opportunity to observe a lesson with the use of tablets and how tablets are being used as a tool to enhance digital literacy and learning.

The guests were treated with some local food to close the event. This was a very enriching experience for all the participants. Special thanks goes to all the teachers, kindergarten educators, learning support assistants, clerk, caretakers and senior management team for ensuring the success of this event. Special thanks to the college principal, Ms Mifsud, who joined us during this venture.
