10 cents Challenge Presentation

On Monday 8th May, the school presented a sum of €1100 to CARITAS Malta.  This sum was collected by students from our school during lent.  Our students managed to collect more than 10, 000 coins.  Year 6.2 managed to collect the most coins.  They were awarded a brand new bike.  Surprisingly, the class decided to donate the bike to a children’s home.  Well Done!

Commonwealth Day

The school celebrated Commonwealth Day during the Special Assembly prepared by Yr6.2.

The 52 countries forming the Commonwealth live in Peace, Diversity and Kinship; values which are present in our school everyday life.

The flag consists of the Commonwealth symbol in gold on a blue field. The symbol centres on a globe, representing the global nature of the Commonwealth and the breadth of its membership.

The original design featured a globe surrounded by 61 radiating, approximately quadrilateral, spears, which form a ‘C’ for ‘Commonwealth’.

Sports Days 2017

This year, the school will be organising a series of sports days instead of one big event.  There will be 4 different Sports Days which will be held in the school yard.  The objective of these Sports Days is totally non-competitive.  The focus is on fun, physical activity and quality time between parents and children.  There will be no spectators since parents have to participate all the time with their children.  So start preparing your water bottles, caps, sunglasses, sunblock and running shoes to participate.

Years 4,5 & 6- Thursday 6th April – 11:00-12:00pm

Science Lego Challenge

The Science Lego challenge was held back in February.  Year 4 students together with their parents had a fantastic time….probably some parents enjoyed it more than their children…..
