Italiano – Lingua e Musica

Students from Year 5.4 recently participated in a national competition aimed at promoting Italian language and culture. The competition was open to all primary schools in Malta and Gozo. Our children proudly performed five popular Italian songs related to animals. Along each song children also learnt related Italian proverbs. The songs were:

Il Coccodrillo Come Fa
Tommaso il Cane Ficcanaso
Attenti al Lupo
Quaranta Quattro Gatti
Il Ballo del Qua Qua

Special thanks to Ms J. Zahra, the class teacher, Mr G. Borg, the school’s librarian and teacher of Italian, and Ms E. Muscat, the Learning Assistant.

Well done to all involved!

Gozo 2016

In what has now become an annual tradition, on Friday 6 May, Year 6 students went on a day trip to Gozo. Leaving early from school, we got to the newly restored Ċitadella for a treasure hunt that saw the children going round the museums hunting for clues. After lunch in Xlendi, we went on a hike to Wied il-Kantra, enjoying the beautiful views before finally heading back towards Mġarr for our trip back.

Pictures speak louder than words so here are a few snapshots from our excursion.

Healthfest 2016

For the 4th year running, the peripatetic teachers at school joined forces and organised Healtfest – a week of activities aimed at promoting healthy lifestyle choices. Throughout the week, children participated in various PE activities and put together healthy snacks in a most creative and imaginative way. An exhibition of children’s work promoting a healthy lifestyle was also set up in one of the school’s foyers. The activities came to a close with the annual sponsored walk. Here are some snapshots from this fantastic week.

DEAR – Drop Everything and Read

Immediately after break today, the whole school went DEAR. We Dropped Everything And Read for 15 minutes! Everyone did, including teachers, assistant heads, and the head of school. The school fell almost completely silent, something that does not happen often. Everyone was engrossed in his or her book and for a whole 15 minutes you could literally hear a pin drop.

This will become a weekly feature on the school’s calendar.
