Reading Stars To promote reading in our school we have decided to award pupils who borrow and read books from our class libraries. Class libraries are well equipped with fiction and non-fiction books, both Maltese and English. A good number of books have been sponsored by parents during parents’ day. Since the beginning of the year we have been prompting pupils to borrow books and log them on the school’s blue reading sheet. Learners who have read a substantial amount of books will be awarded certificates as follows: Bronze certificate for reading 45 books or more Silver certificate for reading 90 books or more Gold certificate for reading 135 books or more Platinum certificate for reading 180 books or more Outstanding certificate for reading 225 books or more Photos of our reading stars are displayed on our “Wall of Fame” in the school foyer.
Reading Super Stars Awards At the end of the year the pupil who reads most books from each year group will be awarded the Reading Super Star trophy. This initiative was inspired by the famous Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars. In fact our Reading Super Star trophy is very similar to the Academy Awards statuette. A photo of last year’s reading super stars is displayed in a frame in the school foyer on our “Wall of Fame”. Reading Super Stars for scholastic year 2017 – 2018 were: Year 1

The long awaited day in our school’s calendar is indeed Celebration Day. On the 22nd March 2019, our school honoured both the social and academic achievement of our young students during a Prize Giving Ceremony held in the School Hall, Naxxar Primary, Maria Regina College. Nonetheless, this year, our school opened its doors to hundreds of diligent learners, their families and other invitees to enjoy this fruitful event. The climax of this year’s celebration was another musical, Hoodwinked, a swashbuckling modern adaptation of the traditional Robin Hood. Presented by our Year 5 young actors, Hoodwinked literally hooked the audience with gusto! Consecutively another performance of great success. Thumbs up!
Special thanks go to the Head of College Network, Mr Patrick Decelis for his constant support and Naxxar Mayor Ms Anne Marie Muscat Fenech Adami together with other Local Councillors for sponsoring the prizes on the night.
