New Plaque – This is Our Concern

As part of the embellishment programme for our school, the Administration of our School has, this last summer, commissioned a plaque displaying our mission statement. This plaque now takes pride of place on the wall adjacent to the Head of School’s office. It says that the school community recognises each child as an individual and that each child has creative capabilities. It also shows our wish that all children are successful. The special welcoming ethos that is felt in our school should help all the pupils to feel good at school and do their utmost to perform well. These are nice words that should inspire each and every one who enters our school.

May we remind you that this Friday 26th September and on Saturday 27th September a number of educational activities will be held in Valletta … do try and participated in the events being organised for the Science in the City event … it ought to be fun for all!  Follow this link for more information about activities related to this event.

EkoSkola – Our Story So Far

Our School joined EkoSkola way back in 2007, when there was a change in the administration of the school. The new administration immediately recognised the potential in all the school community and set the ball rolling. A committee was set up and they decided to focus on three main areas:

1.  The 3 Rs – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

2.  Healthy Eating.

3.  School Ethos and Environment.


The whole school got involved and many activities were held. The end result of the work carried out in the years 2007, 2008 and 2009 had reached such satisfactory levels that our School was awarded the prestigious Green Flag for the first time in November 2009. The ceremony was held at Tal-Handaq Boys’ School. Celebrations were held for the hoisting of the Green Flag at our school.

In 2009 it was decided to further the work by including two other areas

4.  Climate Change

5.  Friendship.


Once again the result of this decision was overwhelming.  Everybody worked wholeheartedly and the Committee was once again able to get everyone on board. The good work of 2009, 2010 and 2011 was, once again rewarded when the Green Flag was reconfirmed in November 2011. This time the ceremony was held at St.Benedict’s Boys School in Kirkop.

Immediately after this celebration,  the new committee was set up and another topic was added:

6.  Water Conservation.

By that time EkoSkola and its work had become part and parcel of our school’s philosophy. Various activities were, once again, organised.  Action plans were set and adhered to. The work of the committee had become that of inciting ideas and guiding the whole echool in achieving its goals. Another adjudication visit was held in June 2013 and the Green Flag was reconfirmed once again. This time the school received the flag during a ceremony that was held at the President’s Palace in December 2013.

Since then the committee has adopted its seventh action plan:

7.  Animal Awareness and Animal Rights.

Another adjudication visit is scheduled for the end of this scholastic year 2014 – 2015. Along these years our school has participated in more than one edition of Eco Parliament and our pupils have always had important roles in these events. Let us all continue to work hard and hope for the best! It is definitely nice to receive an award but the most important thing is the fact that we are all learning and working towards a better world.

Rare Birds That Visit Malta

During this Scholastic Year, we are going to present nine unusual birds that are rare visitors to Malta.  This information is going to be posted on our website once a month, on the 2nd day of each month. We also encourage you to take a look at our Dinja Wahda Noticeboard, as there is very interesting information about birds and beautiful pictures of these lovely creatures.

We acknowledge Mr. Nicholas Galea and Mr. Steve Zammit Lupi, two keen birdwatchers who have a very interesting and informative website. It can be accessed on
