PASTA NIGHT AT OUR SCHOOL

Friday 29th December is an evening to be remembered by all who had the pleasure to attend to the pasta night organised by the marvellous team within the School Council.  The Assembly Hall was transformed into a lovely dining room, with the beautiful fireplace to welcome the guests who have chosen to come over and enjoy the warmth of the place and the good food prepared by Patrick and Josette.

When all was set, our guests started arriving.  The smell of smoke and the background music filled the air with a magical feeling that dates back to when the high officials used to hold their grand banquets in this same hall.  Three types of pasta were served by the parent representatives while the teacher representatives took care of the drinks.  The sauces of the three pasta were incredibly delicious and this added to the beautiful atmosphere there was in this marvellous hall.

Thank you to all who participated in this event.  Special words of appreciation go to Mrs Mamo, Mrs Borg and Mr Vella, parent representatives, and Mr Micallef, Mrs Mifsud and Ms Grech, teacher representatives.  They have worked hard but most of all with such a generous heart.

Journaling – Year 3

Journaling is an exercise whereby its main aim is to make children write without inhibition.  Its objective is to let children put down ideas without the fear of making mistakes.  However for the benefit of our website readers, correction is showed in blue as to identify the mistakes.

L-Esperjenza tagħna f’Ħaġar Qim u t-Tempji tal-Imnajdra

Kien il-Ġimgha, 25 ta’ Ottubru, meta ħarġet ġurnata tassew xemxija għall-ħarġa tassew kulturali.       Elaine

Morna nżuru zewġ postijiet pre-istoriċi, Ħaġar Qim u l-Imnajdra.  Avril

Ħaġar Qim u l-Imnajdra qegħdin iż-Żurrieq u qegħdin ukoll viċin Filfla.  Lyndsey

Dawn it-tempji bnewhom l-ewwel nies li ġew Malta.  Bnewhom biex jitolbu u jiltaqgħu fihom.  Huma dejjem ħassew li hemm xi ħadd ikbar minnhom u għalhekk bnew dawn it-tempji.  Haley

X’ħin wasalna, iltqajna ma’ Ms Maria li mexxietna sakemm wasalna biex naraw film dwar Ħaġar Qim.  Wara li rajna l-film, Ms Maria ħaditna l-mużew biex naraw minn xhiex hu magħmul il-ġebel ta’ Ħaġar Qim.  Nicholas

Fil-mużew rajna ukoll l-mara l-ħoxna.  Maria

Dħalna f’kamra u kien hemm żewġ ġebliet tal-franka, waħda bil-blalen taħtha u oħra tkaxkarha.  Dik tal-blalen kienet ħafna eħfef biex iċċaqlaqha milli tkaxkarha.  Meta żorna t-tempji, rajna qisu tħaffir ġol-ġebel forma ta’ ċirku u għalhekk naħsbu li din il-forma kienu jagħmluha l-blalen.  Gabriel

Wara żorna t-tempju minn barra u minn ġewwa.  Fuq it-tempju hemm tinda kbira biex tipproteġi t-tempju.  Marquita

Żorna t-tempji megalitiċi u impressjonajt ruħi kemm kien kbir il-ġebel u kif għamluh wieqaf mingħajr l-użu ta’ makkinarju.  Andre

L-Imnajdra qiegħed 672m ‘l bogħod minn Ħaġar Qim.  Kien veru interessanti tara kif kienu jibnu dak iż-żmien.  Sfortunatament f’xi postijiet kien hemm ukoll vandaliżmu bħal kitba fuq il-ġebel.  Andy

Launch of Piggy Bank Campaign 2013

We have been honoured to receive amongst us Mrs Abela, wife of the President of Malta, to launch the Piggy Bank Campaign in schools for this coming year.  Our school has been chosen to represent our college for this year.  The Piggy Bank Campaign is a call for solidarity to each and every young citizen in Malta.  Mrs Abela visited the school at 9:00am and she was welcomed by the school’s Senior Management Team, the College Principal and the School and Student Councils.  Mrs Abela enjoyed a short presentation about the different sections of the orchestra presented by the Year 5 pupils and the Maltese folklore dance of Il-Maltija by Shanice Grech and Owen Abela, both children in Year 6.  Later Mrs Abela visited some of the classrooms.  We wish to thank all those involved in the preparation of this unforgettable visit.

Poeżiji mit-tfal għat-tfal:

Kemm nieħu gost waqt il-brejk tal-iskola
Dak il-ħin ngħidu xi ħames ċajtiet
Wara dawk nilagħbu goff bejnietna
U naqilgħu xi żewġ għajtiet.
Len Abela Vassallo Yr 6

Qabel nidħlu l-iskola,
Dejjem ngħidu tliet ċajtiet.
Nitgħallmu fuq in-nannakola
Imbagħad naqilgħu xi ċewġ għajtiet.
Sephora Vella Yr 6

Meta mmur l-iskola, taqbadni s-sogħla
Meta ngħidu xi tliet ċajtiet,
Jien nifraħ u ngħola
Il-qanpiena ddoqq, u nidħlu qisna xi ħutiet.
