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.

On Friday 7th October, the year 4 classes together with the year 5 and year 6 classes went to the Historical village of Vittoriosa, better known as Birgu. They toured the characteristic narrow streets and identified a number of historical buildings and monuments. They also visited the Inquisitor’s Palace and the parish church dedicated to Saint Lawrence. Students were also given some historical background through drama.

On Thursday 13th November 2014 the two Year 5 classes went to Marsaxlokk to carry out a Social Studies fieldwork exercise valid for their half yearly exams. Much to our delight, it was a surprisingly hot and sunny morning, presenting ideal conditions to explore this picturesque fishing village.
The children took their job very seriously and seemed like little detectives looking for clues and evidence to complete their tasks. We could watch many people at their work, including fishermen (and women), street hawkers and restaurant workers. There were also many tourists and children from other schools who were also doing their fieldwork exercise, and we had to be careful not to step on each other’s toes. All in all there was a very friendly atmosphere, and at one time even a native dog came to greet us warmly when we stopped for a lunch break! At the end of the trip we all concluded that it had been a satisfactory and fulfilling experience.
