On Thursday 10th July at 11.45 p.m. the results of the Annual Examinations were posted at the Central Mail Office of the MaltaPost. It was a relatively long process of correcting, checking, inputting marks, printing and enveloping. Thanks to our teachers and secretarial staff, this laborious exercise was completed efficiently as scheduled.
We are very pleased with our students' Annual Examination Results. 230 students (78%) passed from all subjects and were therefore promoted while 67 (22%) students failed in one or more subjects. 9 students failed in more than six subjects.
A sign of relief was very evident on the beaming faces of many of our students today as they came out of the last sitting of their final examinations.
As a school we try to do our best to keep a balance between studies and extra-curricular activities, and although we never add to the pressure that exams bring with them, yet one cannot escape the fact that exams do cause some form of anxiety. So now that the school year is over, the students can start to enjoy their long summer holidays.
Groomed students, accompanied by their proud parents, started filling the school hall right on time to take active part in the graduation ceremony that started at 7.30 p.m.
Ms Denise Psaila Custò greeted all the participants on behalf of the Chairperson of the school's Board of Directors and the Senior Management team and invited everyone for the opening prayers that were animated by the violinist Ian Ellul.
We are deeply honoured to have the opportunity to lead St Michael School’s community as it enters its 66th 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.
Some people complain because God put thorns on roses, while others praise Him for putting roses among thorns.
