To celebrate World Book Day, which this year was celebrated on the 22nd of April, the Schools Library Service (SLS) within the Directorate for Educational Services organised a writing competition for all Primary school pupils around Malta and Gozo. Our school participated with students from two Primary classes: Yr 4 and Yr 6. The children had to write an original short story of not more than 400 words in English or Maltese.
Sara Treki from Class 4D was one of the students who submitted her story and who won a consolation prize for her original story ‘The girl with super powers!!!’

On Thursday 14th April, Year 9 students took part in the International Civic and Citizenship Study (ICCS).
This research programme is an ongoing comparative study that examines the ways young people are prepared to fulfill their roles as citizens. ICCS collects and analyses data that investigates students’ understanding of issues related to civics and citizenship, including their values, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours.
The study was coordinated by Ms Glorian Sammut and administered by Ms Debbie Atanasio.
The Head of School, Mr Kenneth Busuttil, presented the certificates to the students. Below is a photo taken during the event.
