Reverse Advent Calendar

This is last year’s Christmas tree.  It was made from food donations brought by our students during the Reverse Foodbank initiative.Naxxar Primary School has joined the Reverse Advent Calendar Project in aid of the Foodbank at 210, Old Bakery Street, Valletta. Every day, starting Monday 3rd December till Friday 14th December. All the students will donate one non-perishable food item, from cans of food to sugar to cereals. The class teacher will tell the students what and when to bring the item to school.Project Reverse – Naxxar

Every single item will go towards people in desperate need, who unfortunately won’t have the kind of Christmas we are all excited about. This is a fully voluntary initiative. Feel free to opt out without prejudice!

So help us make a difference! Share your food! Share your joy!
