It’s that special time of the year again….Carnival! Carnival at school is an enjoyable event to which we all look forward. We all like to put on our costumes and take part in the activities and parties that are organized. The carnival celebration is a time to let our hair down and go with the flow – perfect for those who enjoy a good party, even at our school!
February brings along the colourful celebration of Carnival, which takes on the traditional pattern of multi-coloured papier mache floats in Valletta and Floriana, King Carnival, masked balls, children running around in fancy costumes, merry band marches, delicious prinjolata and mouth watering perlini. Then there are other nightlife carnivals, such as the famous one in Nadur, catching the late night carnival goers who pile into the streets and squares still wearing their outrageous outfits. The heart of the action takes place in Valletta and Floriana, though various towns and villages across the Island have their own versions of the festivities. Carnival has had an important place on the Maltese cultural calendar for just under five centuries, having been introduced to the Islands by Grand Master Piero de Ponte in 1535.
Christianity has been part of history in Malta for the past 2000 years. According to tradition, it was brought to Malta by none other than the Apostle Paul himself in around A.D. 60. Paul was being taken to Rome to be tried as a political rebel, but the ship carrying him and some 274 others was caught in a violent storm only to be wrecked two weeks later on the Maltese coast. All aboard swam safely to land. The site of the wreck is traditionally known as St. Paul’s Island, and is marked by a statue commemorating the event. The welcome given to the survivors is described in the Acts of the Apostles (XXVIII) by St. Luke:
“And later we learned that the island was called Malta.
And the people who lived there showed us great kindness,
and they made a fire and called us all to warm ourselves… ”
As the fire was lit, Paul was bitten by a poisonous snake but he suffered no ill effects. The natives took this as a sign that he was a special man. This scene is depicted in many religious works of art. According to tradition, the Apostle took refuge in a cave, now known as St. Paul’s Grotto in Rabat, Malta. During his winter stay, he was invited to the house of Publius, the Romans’ chief man on the Islands. It was here, according to tradition, that Paul cured Publius’ father of a serious fever. Publius is then said to have converted to Christianity and was made the first Bishop of Malta.
The Floriana Primary School Headmaster Mr. Stephen Miceli together with teachers and staff from the school and San Ġorġ Preca College Principal Mr. James Camilleri hosted National Book Council representatives for a short ceremony to mark today’s book donation to the school.
The NBC executive chairman Mr. Mark Camilleri opened the ceremony by going through the books and encouraging the teachers present to browse through the considerable list of titles which will soon be made available to their students.
The books donated by the NBC, a mix of reading books, text books and reference books, will be available for the students to borrow from the library as well as to use as readers in the classroom and were purchased following direct consultation with teachers at the school.
During their speeches, both the Floriana Primary Headmaster and the San Ġorġ Preca College Principal expressed gratitude for the ongoing support shown by the NBC.
A BIG thank you once again!
