In Grade 1 we celebrated Colour Day. This day was linked to various curriculum topics being covered in class, particularly colours.
Grade 2 Arnold presented an assembly that introduced our new Grade 1 boys to our Founder and what it means to be Lasallian. The highlight of the morning was when all the boys joyfully joined in, to sing the One La Salle Anthem.
Our first class reader of the year “Look” is all about a special party. Since we have been working on our alphabet sounds at the same time, we thought “What could be better than an Alphabet Party!” Balloons, party hats, music and muffins – a truly enjoyable celebration!
October is the month dedicated to the Rosary. Grade 2 Benjamin presented an assembly to our boys at St. Benild, explaining what this special prayer means.
Our first class assembly for the year at St. Benild was presented by Grade 2 Miguel. The boys related and acted out highlights from the life of St. Francis, to show his special love for animals.
Every year during the International Lasallian Days for Peace (21st September – 21st October), all Lasallians around the world are called to reflect, pray and act on the theme of Peace. World news in the media remind us every single day of how lacking Peace is in our World.
This year, Lasallians from De La Salle College and Stella Maris College were invited to take part in a symbolic outdoor activity together which included moments of prayer for Peace and a Youth Mass.
As part of the Dinja Wahda Programme, a student from each class presented a presentation, a poem, or an experiment to the whole school during Friday Assembly. Well done to all students who represented their class.
As part of animal awareness week, the Grade 6s welcomed Mr Alosio from Dinja Waħda to give a talk about endangered animals. This helped the boys become aware of how different animals are in danger of becoming extinct because of our actions. He also provided them with information on what they can do in order to prevent this. The boys thoroughly enjoyed this talk and showed great enthusiasm.
On Thursday 16 October, the Astronomical Society, in collaboration with Stella Maris College, inaugurated a series of lectures. The first lecture was delivered by Dr. Sandro Lanfranco, a former student of Stella Maris College.
The audience were treated to an interesting and informative lecture on the History of Astronomy. Dr. Lanfranco delved on a multitude of aspects of astronomical history and peppered his talk with interesting snippets of information. The audience were also involved in the discussions on various topics related to the history of Astronomy.
The next lecture in the series will take place on Thursday 23 October, it will be The Sun and our Planetary System, by Mr. Tony Tanti.
