Generation Green researcher and actor Mario gave an excellent interpretation of Catch the Drop campaign. It was pure informative and entertaining education of the highest order. The facts about water that Mario was churning out kept the young audience in attentive mode throughout the 40  minute delivery.

We look forward to another performance by Generation Green who are leaving no stone unturned in their quest of passing the right message to students in an effective and totally entertaining way.

The International Space Station

Students formed part of a group of students from around the world and were given the opportunity to track Mission 52 of the International Space Station, (ISS), orbiting 400km above the earth’s surface. Between 12 and 16 April, using specially supplied access codes, students were able to follow the ground track of the ISS and send camera capture files to the ISS via NASA’s Johnson Space Centre.

The following are some of the images captured by our students. The processing of images is still incomplete and the school gallery is constantly being updated. Clouds masked many of the images requested.

Taħdita għall-istudenti tal-Form 3

Kull nhar ta’ Tlieta l-istudenti tal-Form 3 ikollhom taħdita minn persuna li tiġi taqsam l-esperjenza tagħha dwar karriera partikolari. L-idea wara dawn it-taħditiet hija biex l-istudenti jieħdu togħma ta’ firxa wiesgħa ta’ karrieri biex l-għażla li se jagħmlu lejn tmiem din is-sena skolastika tkun għażla infurmata u li tiftaħ bosta bibien.

Illum kellhom iċ-ċans li jiddiskutu ma’ panel magħmul minn persuni li ġejjin minn oqsma differenti mid-dinja tax-xogħol (maniġer fil-qasam tal-Inġinerija, persuna taħdem fil-qasam tal-IT, u avukat). Din l-attività nħadmet id f’id mad-Domain Group.
Din hija parti mill-ħidma li l-guidance teachers tal-kulleġġ Josianne Bajada u Samuel Gauci, qegħdin jagħmlu mal-istudenti tal-Form 3 biex jiggwidawhom lejn għażla għaqlija.

Dream Big! Read!

New library books have been ordered for the Grade 5s and 6s. The school has invested in The Usborne Reading Collection. This collection is made up from 40 different titles. The themes vary from Shakespeare to classics, fantastic inventions, animals, dinosaurs and so much more. Many students showed interest in these new titles and many young readers have visited our Junior School Library to borrow these books.
