Ash Wednesday is the first day of lent, and as we resume from our mid-term holidays, we gather together to celebrate Mass and reflect on this new time of our liturgical cycle.
At 08:00 just after the school assembly, the whole school community gathered at the hall for a short reflection on the true significance of Lent and the celebration of the Eucharist.
On Wednesday 5th March at 2.45 p.m. the results of the Half Yearly 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 as scheduled.
AccuWeather report predicted that the showers will fade early in the morning and that by 08:00 the sun will shine. That was what the Headmaster was telling the students who were eager to know if the plans for the day’s event were still on track as scheduled. What could a student, after seven days of examinations desire more, if not an outing!?
True to the weather forecast, the clouds made way and the sun shone to the great delight of all of us. It was at around 08:20 when the bell called us all to assemble for the morning prayers and short announcements before our departure. The Headmaster led us in prayers and then announced that the sum collected for this one and only fund raising activity of our school was that of €10,900.
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.
