Easter Figolla

The ever-growing popularity of the annual sale of the traditional Easter Figolla has urged the PTA to organise it once again, despite the hard work it involves.  The parent teacher committee will be accepting a limited number of orders for the “figolli”, proceeds of which would go towards the school upkeep.

We therefore urge you to place your orders as early as possible, and not later than Thursday 7th April to avoid disappointment.   We in turn, promise to deliver very fresh, delicious and beautifully decorated “figolli” on Thursday 14th April.

We thank you most heartily for your support.

St Joseph Celebration – Year 2.2 Ms Marushca

The feast of St Joseph is one of the highlights in the school calendar, St Joseph being the patron saint of our school.

This year the celebration was put up by the girls in Year 2.2 – Ms Marushca.  It was held in the school chapel.

The celebration was about all the beautiful qualities of St Joseph – a man who though entrusted with the task of bringing up the Son of God, always remained humble and obedient.  He always took great care of his wife Mary and the child Jesus and obeyed God’s word without ever questioning it.  At the end of the celebration, each child was given a holy picture of St Joseph with a prayer to this great saint who played an important part in the salvation of man.

Each child was also given a leaflet on which was enlisted the qualities of St Joseph and recipes associated with the feast of St. Joseph.

The leaflet was prepared by Ms. Marushca, the class teacher, and Ms. Maria, the LSA.

Moving Drop Activity

This activity was created to celebrate World Water Day which falls on 22nd March.  The launch was at Kullegg San Nikola, Rabat, where only three representatives from the school were invited.  The drop, which was designed by Joseph Barbara, moved to the schools nearest the aquaducts.  The drop visited our school and the children put in messages to create awareness for saving water.  When the drop finally arrived at Valletta, a celebration was held at St George’s Square.  For this activity both Year 5 classes were present and the President and Secretary of EkoSkola helped in the symbolic gesture of carrying the water to one of the fountains in St George’s Square.  Since not all the girls could go for all the activities, a group of girls gave presentations during a special assembly to inform and involve all the school about all the stages of the Moving Drop activity.
