Form 3 Educational Visit

Students in Form 3 had the opportunity to engage in a unique treasure hunt in Valletta, our capital city and a UNESCO heritage site. This was an original and fun way of exploring the capital’s historical treasures as well as a great event that enabled the students to work together in different teams. In fact, successful completion of the event depended on teamwork, keen observation and creativity.
