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.

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
Initiative to support Children in Hospital.
The Commissioner for Children has asked school children to contribute pencil colours and crayons as an incentive to support hospitalised children. During a spontaneous discussion the children in Year 1 agreed that they would like to contribute to this worthy cause and a collection of colours was made!! Such incentives promote generosity and solidarity, which are admirable qualities we want to see in our children. Well-done Year 1 !!!
What a fine way to finish an extremely hectic day ! This typical Lamb and Chicken Couscous, freshly cooked by the expert hands of Ms Souad, Ms Asmaa Ms Nuzha and Ms Samira was served to all the staff to savour Coupled with this delicacy we also had the opportunity to taste some tuna bread meticulously prepared by Ms Jessica and Mr Alfred. The bread was also distributed to all our wonderful students. And as the saying goes…. the proof of the pudding is in the eating ! And I assure you all was gobbled up ! A BIG THANK YOU AND WELL DONE TO ALL!
Today in KG1A we made popcorn! This hands on activity helped the children to notice the difference between raw corn and cooked popcorn. The children managed to point out that when the corn is raw, it’s yellow, hard and small while when it’s cooked, it becomes white, soft and big.
They loved every minute of it and this could be seen from their pleased faces as well as from their squeals of excitement every time the corn popped !
This was a great experience for our younger ones who had the opportunity to distinguish between cooked food and raw food by distinguishing from its colour, texture and taste. A very big. Well Done !
