STEM to GOZO

The Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes is launching the STEM to GOZO initiative. The initiative targets all students currently in Years 3 to 6 and aims to engage them in exploring STEM themes around Gozo through the use of language and folklore.
Students can participate in one of two categories according to their year group, namely:
 Category 1 for students in Year 3 and Year 4.
 Category 2 for students in Year 5 and Year 6.
The STEM to GOZO initiative is spread over a three-week period spanning from Monday 20th July to Sunday 9th August 2020. All details are listed in the Guidelines and Regulations document attached to this Letter Circular.
Interested student applicants can register their participation by accessing the icon above. Registration deadline is Friday 17th July 2020.
All submitted work will be adjudicated by a panel of professionals in relation to the following criteria:

  1. Content and relevance to task;
  2. Use of language and overall quality work;
  3. Integration of elements of STEM in the final product;
  4. Creativity and presentation.
    Three students, from each category, with the best overall submissions, will receive a family voucher (2 adults and 2 children) for the Gozo Pony Walking Experience. Awards are co-sponsored by the HSBC Malta Foundation.
    Any queries and/or clarifications can be put forward by email to Ms Isabel Zerafa on
    isabel.zerafa@ilearn.edu.mt.

End-of-Year Quiz – Year 4 and 5 students

This Quiz is open to students in Year 4 and Year 5 and it is voluntary. It can be done using the school tablet or any other device convenient for the students. The results will not be used for anything but for students to self-assess their own progress. Prizes will be available for the first five winners in Year 4 and first five winners in Year 5. That is why it is crucial that participating students write their full name, college and school e.g. Tom Smith GC Nadur.

The quiz will start off by students filling in a form with their personal details. Then they will be given a code which they need to use to log in to the quiz. The quiz itself is divided into 2 parts. The first part is based on 5 categories, one for each subject, namely English, Maths, Malti and Science (all examinable subjects). Students have to answer 10 questions and try to do so as quickly as possible. The quicker they answer, the more points they earn! In the second part of the quiz, more challenging questions are asked based on English and Maltese Literature as well as science. These questions too are timed. Remember, the aim of the quiz is to help students revise and so, it’s important that they take note of the correct answers shown.

The Quiz will take place on the last day of school: Friday 26th June 2020 and it should take roughly 30 minutes to complete.  Students can access the quiz on the day by clicking on this tab: 

Students can try out the quiz more than once, however, only the first try will be considered for the purposes of the competition. The quiz will be open on Friday 26th June 2020 between 8.30 am and 12.30. Final results of the first five winners in Year 4 and first five winners in Year 5 will be available after 12.30.

Good luck!
