As part of the Eko Skola programme, last Monday being the 25th of November, we were invited to participate in a seminar. Many other church and state schools attended for this seminar. We went with Ms Brenda and Ms Pierline our two Eko Skola link teachers. We were divided into two groups – one group for the adults and the other group for us students. We had the opportunity to get to know more what other schools are doing and share this good practice during the Eko Skola school activities. During the work shop, we even planted seeds in some soil to have our own tree. The seeds represented our national Maltese tree which is ‘(Is-Sigra tal-Gharghar) Sandarac Gum Tree’. It is an evergreen tree. It is capable of growing 6 to 15M in height. It is a strictly protected tree.
It was a wonderful experience and we learned a lot of different facts. We hope that we attend similar events in the future coming.
