The European Day of Languages has been celebrated every year on the 26th September 2001 at the initiative of the Council of Europe, Strasbourg. At Attard Primary, we celebrated this special event last Friday in coincidence with the visit to our school by members from the commune of Elancourt, France, as well as members of Attard Local Council.
The following are some photos of the event:
On the 16th of October year 5 and year 6 students were involved in workshops in Valletta and Birgu. These consisted in dance, instrument building, a saluting battery from Valletta and Birgu.
Here are a few pictures taken by members of staff at the event that took place in and around Fort St. Elmo, Birgu.
Yesterday we had a special morning assembly; pupils were allowed to bring their pets to school. After praying together so that God will help us to take care of our dear pets, the parish priest of Attard, Fr. Noel Vassallo blessed the animals and their carers.
Yesterday, it was the end of the scholastic year for primary school pupils, and of course the end of the primary years for the year 6 students. For the occasion the two year 6 classes presented a concert for their parents last Monday.
Yesterday the year 6 classes celebrated the last day of school by going out for a pizza.
Library Week is now over, but the works that our students prepared lives on. The Exhibition is in the school’s foyer. All students from kindergarten up to year 6 participated.
In class 2.2 pupils also calculated the types of books/stories they preferred.
As part of the Library Week activities, Ms Grixti distributed book donations to class libraries.
We all love books. They are everyone’s best companion during work as well as leisure. Several people love reading for pleasure and there are plenty of books about any subject in every language.
Today the whole school spent a few minutes celebrating World Book Day. We all gathered in the yard with our favourite book and we all spent some time reading.
During this session the Kindergarten pupils also gathered to celebrate this activity. They listened to the story of Blue Bear. The story was related to them by three year 5 students and their teacher Ms Michelle, who produced the big book.
The students were told to bring recycled material which they thought they would require to make vehicles. These vehicles were to be powered by energy from balloons. The activity ended with a vehicle race.
The following pictures show the winning vehicle and the winning team.
