VC -eTwinning Project – Read Share Enjoy

Today, Ms Oriel’s class of year 1 joined two other classes from Mtarfa and Mellieha to share a reading activity. After introducing the schools and the students who participated in the project, the students from Mellieha Primary School shared the story of The Scarecrow by Elaine Bailey, the students from Mtarfa read the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and sang a song and the students from Attard sang the song of The Gingerbread Men. After each presentation the students answered questions about the stories they had just heard. Later, the three classes sang one of the songs together.

Meet the Author

This week the school is celebrating Book Week. Students in year 3 and year 4 had the opportunity to meet Mr Noel Tanti yesterday. Mr Tanti talked about his writings, how he met his book illustrator and how they work together, and then he read a selection from one of his books. Today, years 5 and 6 went online to meet Mr Charles Casha. He read a section from one of his books, the famous Fra Mudest. The children asked questions about his writings.

Drop Everything and Read

This is one of the activities the school is carrying out this week as part of Book Week. Some classes preferred to carry out the half our reading activity in class while other classes enjoyed the lovely weather and found spots in the shade in the school yard. Here are some photos of the activity.

Easter Holidays

See the source image

Wednesday 13th April is the start of Easter Holidays. Students will have some free time to spend with their parents and siblings.

Free time does not mean timewasting. It also means catching up on other things such as attending church functions, which are the epitome of our faith; visiting relatives, especially relatives who are unable to leave their homes; spending quality time together with the family, such as cooking together, going out for walks in the countryside, doing crafts together; catching up on study; spending time reading, etc.

We return back to school on the 25th April, hopefully fully refreshed to start the third term.

Happy Easter to our staff, students and their families!

Today’s Holy Mass Celebration

Today is the day dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows. In usual circumstances all year 3 to 6 students walk to the Parish Church in Attard to celebrate Holy Mass all together. Due to the pandemic restrictions, the school administration, together with the Parish Priest of Attard, decided to send the students by year group in different time-slots. Below are some photos of the students during Mass.

Lent – a period of reflection

During the past week, our students attended lent talks held by the Attard Parish Priest at the Attard Parish Hall. Due to Covid restrictions the year groups had to attend separately. Below are some photos taken during one of the sessions:
