Celebration Day

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.

School Council Elections

Dear Parent/Guardian,

School Council Elections 2019 – 2020

School Council Elections are being held as per Education Act 1988 in all State Schools in Malta and Gozo.

The School Council is made up of:

  • A President – who is nominated by the Minister for Education and Employment
  • A Secretary/Treasurer – who is the Head of School
  • Three representatives elected from among the Educators based at the school
  • Three representatives elected from among the Parents/Guardians whose children attend the School.

Elections will be held between Thursday 31st January and Monday 4th February. This year elections will be conducted online. Each parent is entitled to a vote. Parents can vote online at using a computer, a smartphone or a tablet. They can also choose to vote by going to the school on Thursday, Friday or Monday (31st January, 1st and 4th February) between 9.00 a.m. and 1.30 p.m. and vote using computers set up at the school. Helpers will be available to assist parents to vote. It is important that these parents take with them the Code that was given to their child so as to be able to vote.

Three parents/guardians, ready to serve on the School Council, are required.  The excellent work and dedication of members who served on previous Councils left positive results in our school.  Parents/guardians are therefore encouraged to participate in these elections by either volunteering as Council Members or by nominating other parents/guardians of children in our school. Participation in these elections is of utmost importance and your cooperation is greatly appreciated in the best interests of the school and the students.
