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.
This month Mr Mifsud, the school clerk, celebrated his birthday and day of retirement. Ms Grixti, the head of school, invited him for a special assembly so that the whole school thanks him for the sterling work.
Today, during assembly we celebrated the student of the month for October 2014. Several students from each class were chosen for the following qualities:
> being a model student
> being helpful towards peers
> being helpful and well-mannered
> improving in terms of behaviour
> excellent manners
> being hard working
> presenting good work
> neat handwriting
> being kind
The year 6 classes, with the help of their teachers and learning support assistants, prepared a special assembly to commemorate Dun Karm’s Day. Year 6.1 prepared a play that included much information about the Maltese poet and his works. Class 6.2 chose poems by Dun Karm that are very popular with both children and adults. Of course the Maltese National Hymn was also mentioned and recited.
Last week we celebrated the European day of languages. As part of the celebration all the year groups said ‘good morning’ in different European languages.
