A number of events and activities were organized throughout the week to cultivate greater awareness for the need of a healthy and balanced life-style.
The idea of holding a special week, dedicated entirely to health and wellbeing, was the brainchild of two very active groups within our school community: The School Council, and the EkoSkola committee. These two groups, guided by their teachers or staff representatives, worked hard throughout the past weeks to organize an intensive special week, culminating in a special evening which was celebrated on Friday 15th May.
This year, as a school, we celebrated the feast of St George Preca on Thursday 7th May, this is because the actual commemoration fell on a Saturday.
The day's programme started as 08:00 when the whole school gathered to celebrate Mass at the school hall. Members of the Pastoral team prepared a short play where a journalist interviewed Dun Gorg and three of the early SDC members, including Mr Toni Agius, our School Founder.
Early on Monday 27th April a group of 12 Third Formers students together with Mr Louis Aguis, our Italian Teacher and Mr Martin Abela, our School Secretary started a five day trip to Vittoria a small city in Ragusa, Sicily.
The eTwinning project entitled ‘Getting to know each other through Celebrations', brings together some of our students who study Italian together with students from l'Istituto Comprensivo Statale San Biagio, Vittoria, Ragusa.
We are deeply honoured to have the opportunity to lead St Michael School’s community as it enters its 68th year of service. Through the years we have developed a strong appreciation for the holistic approach to education and we try our best to provide an outstanding opportunity for youths to grow and develop as mature Christian citizens.
"The function of a good book is to stand like a signpost directing the reader toward the Truth and the Life. That book serves best which early makes itself unnecessary, just as a signpost serves best after it is forgotten, after the traveler has arrived safely at his desired haven.
The work of a good book is to incite the reader to moral action, to turn his eyes toward God and urge him forward. Beyond that it cannot go."
A. W. Tozer (1897-1963), The Divine Conquest
