Training session conducted by Mr Gaetano Bugeja (Director – Curriculum)

During the session Mr Bugeja gave a captivating account of the necessity to continue cultivating a drive for Formative Assessment. He cited numerous examples as to how a culture of continuous assessment is in fact a reality reflected in the place of work. He clearly explained that what is sowed during the formative years in the kinder and primary sectors is reflected in secondary school, in higher educational institutions and later on at work placements.

He praised teachers at Mariam Albatool School for being at the very forefront to embrace changes in the educational sector.

It was real pleasure having Mr Bugeja supporting the initiatives of the school.

A big THANK YOU goes to the Educators present during the meeting and who participated very actively and whose queries were answered by the speaker.

The School Administration and Staff would like to THANK Mr Bugeja for his constant and relentless support to our school. A BIG WELL Done to all

Creative writing in Year 2D

Brian Vassallo | Events

Writing does not have to be restricted to the same topics but can be child initiated. Children love writing their own stories and poems, simple as they may be, they are very creative and their imagination shines in these little books and short poems which, if this talent is encouraged and nurtured , encourages them to become proficient writers.

On 24th April 2017, Form 2 and Form3 students went to San Anton Palace to celebrate the World Book Day. The trip was organised by their teachers Ms Aslihan Arikan Zammit, Ms Elaine Falzon and Ms Christine Refalo to promote a reading culture and as a follow up of Read and Tell project in Form 3.

Before entering the magical Secret Garden, we toured the palace where we were taken to visit the library dedicated to Anton Buttigieg, the second president of Malta and a Maltese poet.  The students were given a brief talk about the library and listened to a poem by Mr. Buttigieg.

The activity continued in the secret garden at San Anton Palace where students of all ages from different schools gathered to read books and listen to stories in the open air.  We were met by our host Mr Damjan Attard who has been working in the NGO segment. He welcomed our group where all the students sat on grass and listened to his captivating stories of his travels to different parts of the world.

We finally ended our day having some refreshments and an ice cream at the President’s Kitchen Garden. World Book Day is designated by UNESCO and annually celebrated on 23rd April, the day both William Shakespeare and Cervantes, the famous Spanish writer of Don Quixote, died.
