Today we celebrated world book day by allowing special time for reading. Our children have books in the class libraries and now we are also proud of our school library as the books have been weeded to include those suitable for children in our school. This has been carried out by the professional staff at the School’s Library Services. The following are pictures of children reading in the school yard.

Today, our school welcomed the Peace Run Team. Our students met the Team in the school yard and some pupils were lucky enough to run while holding the Peace Torch. The ceremony carried on in the school hall included a welcoming song by the school choir, and a short but very informative feature about the Peace Run Team, and the founder Sri Chinmoy. Then the Team sang the Peace Run song. Later the children were invited to take part in games organised by the Team.
Here are some photos of the event:
All year 4 students took part in a project “Our community” over three consecutive scholastic years. This was undertaken with the help of Junior Achievement Young Enterprise, an organisation that promotes entrepreneurship qualities. Teachers and pupils worked on this project on a number of artefacts which were later exhibited. These artefacts consisted of 3D models representing a typical Maltese community. The students were finally presented with a certificate.
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:
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.
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.
