Futsal – Year 5

Year 5 students participated in a Futsal tournament organised by the Sport Promotion Unit at the Cottonera Sports Complex. The children were divided into 17 teams and games were played simultaneously on 3 pitches, ensuring that every child participated. Each game lasted for 9 minutes. Throughout, there was an emphasis on teamwork and active participation. The children had fun and the atmosphere at the Sports Complex was just great. The last game proved to be the most exciting one of all with teachers playing against children!

Trekking – Tas-Silġ

On Thursday 18 October, Year 5 students went trekking in the area known as Tas-Silġ in Marsaxlokk. They were accompanied by their teachers and two guides from KMS Sport Promotion Unit through different paths in the area. It was an interesting walk during which children could admire the landscape and natural environment. This outing activity also provided children with the opportunity to get to know each other better in a different environment other than the classroom at the beginning of the scholastic year.

Animal Awareness Day 2012

On Thursday 4 October our school celebrated Animal Awareness Day. During morning assembly, the Head of School spoke about this special day and about the love we should have towards animals. He also told us that there would be a surprise during the day!

And what a surprise! During the Mathematics lesson, while the teacher was explaining how to read and write large numbers, two lovely dogs, Buddy and Lulu, came into class accompanied by their carer.

Buddy is a large, snow-white dog. He was abondoned, run over by a car and even shot. He was rescued and now lives happily with his owner. Lulu is a brown dog which was also run over by a car. Luckily, she was rescued and will soon be going to Germany to a new, loving home!

The two dogs were so happy to be with us that they did not want to leave the classroom. Buddy lay down on the floor waiting to be patted. We were really excited and with the teacher’s permission and under the watchful eye of their carer, we carefully approached the dogs to pat them. We really enjoyed ourselves and so did the two dogs!

The school also collected cat and dog food to help stray animals.
