Congratulations Malta – Well Done Destiny

Congratulations go to Destiny Chukunyere with the song “Not My Soul”! Destiny wrote this song herself and it is truly a good one and surely a winner.


Winning the contest with 185 points, the 13 year old from the city of Birkirkara won by a 9 point margin, with Armenia placing in the second place. With these victory marks Malta has got the second victory in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in only three years! Not only did Destiny win the trophy for our dear homeland, but she did it decisively: Malta’s win with 185 points is the highest point total in Junior Eurovision Song Contest history. Saturday 21st November was definitely the Day of Destiny!

Dinja Waħda Gold Award & The Blue Banner Again!

On the 16th of November, during the Dinja Waħda Award Giving Ceremony, our school received the gold award once again and we also received the authorization to keep the Blue Banner for yet another year!  Working towards a cleaner and greener world is one of our school’s top priorities and all of us enjoy learning about birds, insects, plants, trees and about our natural environment in general.  Last year we even managed to rope in our own parents who came to school and took part in various Dinja Waħda activities.  At school we have a large noticeboard which is usually very nicely put up with photos of birds and other fauna that live in Malta and Gozo.  A big thank you goes to all our teachers who are keeping the project running and special thanks to Ms Christine and to Ms Audrey for their co-ordination of the project.

Well Done Floriana Primary!
