Għall-ewwel darba t-tim tal-EkoSkola ġie mistieden biex jagħmel żjara fl-uffiċini tal-kumpanija tal-MiddleSea ġewwa l-Furjana. Il-membri kollha kienu ħerqana għal din l-esperjenza. Aħna l-għalliema ħdimna bis-sħiħ sabiex din il-ġurnata tkun waħda memorabbli u ppreparajna lit-tfal sew minn qabel ma morna.
Meta wasal il-jum it-tfal ingħataw sett ta’ mistoqsijiet sabiex jiggwidawhom għal dan l-audit. Konna ma’ żewġ skejjel oħra u kull skola kellha tiċċekkja sular differenti. It-tfal tagħna flimkien magħna l-għalliema u anki mar-rappreżentant tal-kumpanija żorna l-entratura u l-uffiċċji kollha tas-sular t’isfel. It-tfal urew entużjażmu u interess kbir u għamlu xogħolhom tajjeb ħafna. Involvew ruħhom bi ħġarhom il-ħin kollu. Fittxew f’kull rokna u ma ħallew xejn jaħarbilhom minn għajnejhom.
Din l-esperjenza ser tibqa’ f’moħħna. Għandna d-dmir li niktbu rapport sabiex ngħinu aktar lil din il-kumpanija biex issir aktar ‘Eco-Friendly’. Il-ħaddiema laqgħuna bi ħġarhom u qed jistennew ir-rapport tagħna sabiex iwettqu s-suġġerimenti li ser niktbulhom.

What do the trees, a little hamster and human beings have in common? All need water. All living things must have water to survive, whether they get it from a water fountain, a rain cloud, or a little bottle attached to the side of a hamster cage.
Without water, our body would stop working properly. Water makes up more than half of our body weight and we can’t survive for more than a few days without it. Our body has lots of important jobs and it needs water to do many of them. For instance, our blood, which contains a lot of water, carries oxygen to all the cells of our body. Without oxygen, those tiny cells would die and our body would stop working. Our body doesn’t get water only from drinking water. Any fluid that we drink contains water, but water and milk are the best choices. Since water is so important, we might wonder if we’re drinking enough. There is no magic amount of water that we need to drink every day. Usually, we like to drink something with meals and should definitely drink when we are thirsty. But when it’s warm or we’re exercising, we need to drink more. Be sure to drink some extra water when you’re out in warm weather, especially while playing sports or exercising. Our body will be able to do all of its wonderful jobs and we’ll feel great!
Well done, well done,
You deserve our praises!
Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul.
Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal!

A big well done goes to Robert Saillard, a year 6 pupil at SGPC Floriana Primary who has been awarded the Marcelle Holland Trophy by the Floriana Local Council. This trophy is awarded to a child who shows interest in Environmental Awareness. The award giving cermony during which Robert received the Marcelle Holland Trophy forms part of the activities which are organised to commemorate Floriana day prior to the feast of Saint Publius, Floriana’s patron saint. May we all have pride and love for our home town, which forms us as we grow!
This morning Mr James Camilleri, the College Principal, presented Mark Giusti a prize for his winning entry in the Diary Cover Competition. Mark was applauded by one and all. In his speech Mr Camilleri highlighted the importance of having all work praised be it academic or artistic work such as this, as it clearly shows how our talents can be developed even further. Mr Camilleri also referred to the importance of the family not only in the upbringing of children, but also when backing pupils in their work and encouraged the idea of parents working together with the school for the benefit of the pupils.
Well done Mark!
