The Rainbow Fish – Special Assembly Year 1

The Year 1 special assembly held on the 1st December was called ‘The Rainbow Fish’.  Together with their class teacher Ms Diane and LSA Ms Gabrielle the students read the story in class and watched a video of the same story.  The rainbow fish believed that she was the most beautiful fish because of her silver scales, but she was sad and lonely, because the other fish didn’t want to play with her.  The story encourages the children to be more humble and to be more willing to share their possessions.  The children were exposed to a situation where being happy does not mean having everything or being the best amongst those around you.  On stage the year one students acted out the story and had colourful props and all took active part in the short play.  The whole class then danced along to the song Under The Sea while everyone clapped and enjoyed the show.

U fl-aħħar Diċembru!

U s-sena tgerbet u waslet fi tmiemha!  Kemm jgħaddi ż-żmien hux u ma joqgħod jistenna lil ħadd!  Wasal Diċembru, l-aħħar xahar tas-sena u li fih 31 jum.  Huwa xahar mimli festi sbieħ u li fihom inħossu li għandna għaliex niċċelebraw u nkunu ferħanin.  Insemmi l-festa ta’ San Nikola fis-6 ta’ Diċembru, l-Immakulata Kunċizzjoni fit-8 ta’ Diċembru, Jum ir-Repubblika fit-13, il-Milied fil-25 u l-aħħar tas-sena fil-31.  Kollha huma sbieħ u għandhom tifsira speċjali iżda li żgur li l-aktar waħda li għandkom għal qalbkom hija l-festa tal-Milied, li tfakkarna f’meta l-Iben t’Alla twieled fostna bħala tarbija fl-għar fqajjar ta’ Betlem!  Huwa veru li fi żmien il-Milied nifirħu b’ħafna affarijiet oħrajn; bħal festini, tiżjin u kant, rigali, ħafna ikel u xorb u ħafna affarijiet oħrajn; imma l-ġrajja tat-twelid ta’ Ġesu’ hija żgur l-aktar ħaġa importanti!

Matul dan ix-xahar tintemm il-ħarifa u tibda x-xitwa: żmien ta’ bard u ksieħ, xita u maltemp!  Noqogħdu ħafna ġewwa, ħdejn xi heater u nilbsu ħafna ħwejjeġ ħoxnin u sħan, bħal xi ġakketta ħoxna, xi kowt u b’xi muffler m’għonqna biex ma nħossux kesħa!

Imbagħad fil-lejl bejn il-31 ta’ Diċembru u l-1 ta’ Jannar insellmu lis-sena li tkun spiċċat u nħarsu b’tama ġdida lejn is-sena li tkun qed titwieled.
