European Schools’ Sports Day 30th September 2016

All the students and members of staff at San Ġorġ Preca College Floriana Primary School participated in well organized 2 hour long sports event in order to be part of the ESSD activity.  This was held on the 30th of September 2016 and was held in our own school yard.  The event kicked off when the Head of School explained the raison d’etre behind this event and that the school is  promoting a healthy mind in a healthy body in accordance with its action plans.  The school yard was divided into various sections, each housing a different game; and everyone was invited to take part in these fun activities.  Games also included some Maltese traditional passtimes such as the Passju.

In conjunction with this event, students and teachers were also encouraged to contribute in a silver collection in aid of STRINA.

Scholastic Year 2016 – 2017

Dear Parents and Colleagues,

Summer is almost over and it is time for yet another scholastic year to start!  As always our work has to be inspiring for all your children as learners entrusted to our care – we have to be thoughtful, caring, student focused and smart.  This will make our educational journey one of joy and fun! When the roller-coaster ride of the upcoming scholastic year gets us down, we are to recall these hopes and dreams!

I usually get a good chuckle when I think about the story of the perfect school: it is just a dream – it’s the school where no student has shown up yet. While I still think it’s pretty funny, I have to change the statement the bit. The perfect school is the one were all the students are always present – with all of their different backgrounds, their issues, their drama, their attitudes, their insights, their feelings and their energy. We all move closer to perfection because the students are with us and part of our lives.

Let us all remember that when it gets tough, we shall not blame the students. Our responsibility as parents and as teachers is to figure out which strategy will work with our children, because everyone comes with a different, compelling story. We are trying to change history, and although it is not easy, it will be rewarding. When it gets really tough, try to see the students they will become, not the students they are at that moment.

Let us also remember not to blame ourselves. Until we develop a personal connection with a child we have to look for help and support from colleagues and friends – we have a collective responsibility to serve each other as well as the students. We are not alone.

Also, we work to make a difference in the lives of every student we meet; however, not every student will succeed in the short time we have with them. This does not mean we can give up on kids; it reminds us not to blame ourselves when we cannot reach a student. Often, the life lessons we teach are not realized until the students are ready to learn them – maybe years after they have left your school.

Let us remember to laugh often, to cry when we need to, to have fun, to be inspired, make a positive difference, to have a great year and enjoy the ride.

May we all have a very good year!
