The year 6 class has participated in a technological project which was part of an entrepreneurship programme sponsored by the Education Department. The project was carried out in collaboration with MEDE and Easy Peasy company which has provided the tools and human resources for its implementation.The kids have been assigned a stand at the Robotics fair at the MFCC in Ta Qali where they presented their product and sold it. It was an excellent opportunity for the kids to acquire different skills in the technological sector. After sessions of brainstorming and research to choose the right product, the class decided that they would design keychains, magnets and mini robots. Finally they had an exhibition with their work at the MRO where they could sell their products and talk about their project.

The school administration would like to thank Ms Diana Salerno for her constant commitment towards the welfare of our students.

Safety at Home

Brian Vassallo | News, Y3

Both Year 3 classes had a Maltese reading book about firefighters and safety. They really liked the book and we, educators thought about organizing an outing to the fire station in Paola in which the pupils could see what the work of a firefighter actually involves. Everyone enjoyed the outing and the firefighters themselves asked us to visit our school for a follow-up activity in which they themselves talked about safety at home. It was a very fruitful experience for the pupils.

The school administration would like to thank Ms Jessica Muscat and Ms Doris Schembri for their dedication towards the holistic development of all pupils under their care. THANK YOU !
