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:
On the 17th December 2015, the year 5 classes visited Buskett. A guide showed them around newly restored farm houses that date back to 1636-57, the era of Grand Master Lascaris. The children not only visited these old farmhouses, but they had the opportunity to observe the beauty of nature around them.

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.

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.
