Casual Day – October 24th

On Friday October 24, the children were allowed to come to school wearing casual clothes instead of their uniform.  For breaking a school rule, they were expected to pay a minimum of a 50c donation to the NGO MBR (Maratona bir-Roti).  Such a donation was felt necessary since the same NGO donated an AED (automated External Defibrillator) to the school.  This medical equipment can be used in cases of heart problems until medical aid arrives at school.  In fact, the AED can check the heartbeat of a victim and restart the heart in case of heart failure.
