EkoSkola Summit 2015

Din is-sena x-xorti messet lilna li mmorru l-Parlament sabiex nattendu għas-summit tal-EkoSkola. Konna xxurtjati li nkunu fil-Parlament il-ġdid. Nistgħu ngħidu li aħna konna minn tal-ewwel li naraw dan il-bini modern u sabiħ.

Żewġ għalliema Ms Brenda u Ms Maria ġew magħna sabiex nipparteċipaw f’dan is-summit. Kellna l-opportunità li noqogħdu bilqegħda ħdejn il-Ministri ta’ Malta u t’Għawdex. Iddiskutejna u tkellimna dwar il-Millenium Development Goals (MDGS). Flimkien tkellimna kif għandna ntejbu sabiex ikollna ambjent sostenibbli. Il-Ministri wkoll ħadu sehem f’din id-diskussjoni. Mexxa dan is-summit l-ispeaker Dr Anglu Farrugia. Kienu wkoll preżenti l-għalliema kollha tal-EkoSkola kif ukoll il-President Vincent Attard u l-EkoSkola Coordinator Prof Paul Pace.


Din il-ġurnata ma aħna ser ninsewha qatt u ser tibqa’ f’moħħna għal dejjem!

Greener and Greener Still!

Hurray to Floriana Primary School! It’s the Green Flag once again! For the fourth time!  Isn’t that something that should make us really proud!  These last two years we all worked on our fourth phase in our EkoSkola Project. This time we all focused on the topic of Animal Awareness and giving a voice to the animals that are at risk of extinction or to some kind of cruelty.  We had various apeakers coming over to school and we had some really interesting discussions going on! We also visited various places were animals are being cared for! We also had many cross-curricular activities and lessons.   All these were held concurrently with other activities related to all our previous action plans.  This time the Adjudication Board visited our school on Monday 25th May 2015.  All the school looked really nice and colourful as, for this occasion, we all, members of staff included, decided to bring animal soft toys to school! One has to say that the members of the Adjudication Board were really impressed by our organization and our enthusiasm towards our work to bring about a better world!  Now all is set for our school to receive the prestigious Green Flag from H.E. Marie Louise Coleiro Preca during the Awards Ceremony which is going to be held at the President’s Palace in Valletta on the 3rd of June.  We feel obliged to thank our EkoSkola Link Teachers and Mr. Johann Gatt, the EkoSkola co-Ordinator!  A big THANKS to one and all!

Inauguration of the Refurbished School Yard

On Thursday 21st May 2015, a special activity was held in order to officially inaugurate the new turf and the new goal posts in our school yard.  A very big thank you goes to all who were involved in this project. A big thank you goes to the Floriana Football Nursery, to Mr. Charles Farrugia. To Ms. Marlene Miceli and to Mr. Joseph Sammut, from Paolo Bonnici Ltd who sponsored the activity with Weetabix Products.  All the pupils really enjoyed themselves during this activity.  The highlight was when some of our own teachers had a mini-match! Needless to say: the Head of School chose a green and white ball for this activity!!

Happy Mother’s Day

It is thanks to those that love us and gave us life that we are here and on this special day we wish all mothers the best day ever … thanks for giving us your love and your care to all MUMs around the world!

Mothers and Grandmothers at School

The Kindergarten Section celebrated Mother’s Day with a difference as they asked not just the pupils’ mothers but their grandmothers as well.  The first part of the activity was held in the school hall where the Crowning of Our Lady was held.  As part of this celebration one of the little ones from the kindergarten section recited a very sweet poem to Our Lady.  Then everyone proceeded to the school yard were songs, rhymes, poems and a dance were enjoyed by one and all.  The activity came to an end when all the mothers received hand made cards and gifts.  Refreshments were also served.
