Brian Vassallo | Events

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.

MERCS Malta Activity

This year, MERCS Malta is proud to announce that it took part in the third annual medieval event, organised by Mariam Albatool School.

On this special day, students from the school attended an interactive show featuring the medieval way of life and warfare. An educational journey, that goes back to our Maltese heritage. Apart from various demonstrations, the students and teachers took part in our popular archery range, which was a HUGE success! MERCS Malta would really like to thank Mr Kenneth Busuttil, as well as the assistant heads, teachers and of course the students for making us feel more than welcome.

A big round of Applause goes to Cleve Zammit, Dylan Sultana, Christine Montebbello, Christian Zammit (aka ZAZU) George Bezzina and our newest Members Mikal Suleiman, Abdullah and Aisha Elsadi for making this event a truly great one.A special mention goes to Lawrence Sultana for all the help he gave us.

The school administration would like to thank Mr Dylan Sultana for organising this event and hopes for more activities of this kind in the near future.
