New Murals for our School

Two new murals are taking pride of place in our school foyer. These large murals are part of our school’s embellishment programme and are the work of Mr Rayvin Galea. One of the murals shows Grandmaster Antonio Manoel de Vilhena, who reigned in Malta between 1722 till 1736. He was the 66th Grandmaster of the Order of Saint John. He was the person responsible for the building of Floriana. The other mural depicts Saint Publius, first bishop of Malta and Patron Saint of our town. It is believed that Saint Publius went to Athens when he was an old man. There he was martyred by being thrown into a lions’ den.

Christ the King

This beautiful monument in Floriana is the work of the famous Maltese sculptor Antonio Sciortino. It commemorates the International Eucharistic Congress of 1913, which was an important international religious event that was held in Malta. Besides the main figure of Jesus Christ, this artistic bronze monument includes the figure of a lady representing Malta, kneeling in honour of Christ, her king. It is commonly known as the monument of Christ the King.

The feast of Christ the King was established by Pope Pius XI in 1925. In 1970 this feast started to mark the end of the liturgical year; just a Sunday before Advent starts. It reminds us that Jesus is the king of our hearts and king of the whole universe.

Tnaqqis tal-Iskart

Din il-ġimgħa, bejn it-22 u t-30 ta’ Novembru hija l-ġimgħa Ewropea ddedikata għat-tnaqqis tal-iskart.

L-iskola tagħna ġiet magħżula biex tieħu azzjoni fit-tnaqqis tal-iskart.  Kif forsi ndunajtu fejn it-taraġ għamilna spazju apposta għar-reċiklaġġ ta’ batteriji, bolol u apparat elettroniku żgħir. Barra minn hekk żidna wkoll post għall-karti li huma użati biss minn naħa waħda biex min ikollu bżonn jista’ jmur jiġbor karta minn hemm. Kull klassi għandha kaxxi apposta u qed tissepara l-iskart sew u kif suppost.

Kif nistgħu nnaqsu l-iskart?

L-aħjar ħaġa biex jitnaqqas l-iskart hu li titnaqqas il-produzzjoni – REDUCE.

Li terġa’ tuża prodott huwa t-tieni l-aħjar ħaġa wara li jitnaqqas l’użu, għax meta jitnaqqas l’użu qed tonqos il-produzzjoni u tintuża’ inqas materja prima – REUSE.

Meta nirreċiklaw inkunu qed nitfgħu l-prodott lura fis-sistema, b’hekk tonqos il-produzzjoni u tintuża inqas materja prima – RECYCLE
