Speech by Nathan Gatt Grade 6 Benjamin during the Commonwealth Day Celebration @ Auberge de Castille.
We the students of Stella Maris College, wish that all the children that form part of the Commonwealth will have access to a decent place where to live and the right to a good standard of living. This means that every family should be able to enjoy their basic needs.
Each person has the right to a water supply that is good for drinking and for personal sanitation. 4,000 children die every day from water-related diseases that can easily be prevented. Children should have an opportunity to go to school instead of having to walk long distances to collect water for their family. So our wish is to increase water wells in urban and rural areas.
There are more than 1500 active volcanoes on the Earth. Currently scientists are aware of 80 or more which are under the oceans.
The Sun – Our Star was the title of an Astronomy lecture held on Thursday 27 February in John Paul II Hall. The lecturer was Mr. Tony Tanti, PRO and past President of the Malta Astronomy Association. After the lecture Br. David, Director, presented Mr. Tanti with a college memento.
On rainy days we cannot go out to play…but we still burn off our energy!

The Bee-Bot is an exciting robot designed for use by young children. The colourful, easy-to-operate, and friendly little robot is a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, and just having fun!
This morning, the Grade 1 students were welcomed by two “friendly” bee-bots, Mr Bee-Bot and Ms Bee-Bot. The students learnt how to programme the Bee-Bots and make them move on a special designed mat. The students programmed the Bee-Bot to move forward, turn, stop, flash lights and make sounds. The themed mat was designed to teach the students planning and spatial awareness.
The students will have the opportunity to programme the Bee-Bots on different themed mats in the coming weeks. A little surprise is waiting for them next week!
Some quotations from famous people about coding:
Stephen Hawking – “Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you just want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn.”
Bill Gates – “Learning to write programs stretches your mind, and helps you think better, creates a way of thinking about things that I think is helpful in all domains.”
Forrm 3 Blue students Jan Manicolo and Luke Borg have created the following Prezi presentation on the Historical Development of the Idea of Gravitation.
