Our school celebrated this year's Christmas concert on Friday 12th December. The evening's programme stated off with the singing of two Christmas carols sang by our new comers, directed by also by one of our new teachers, Ms Luana Riolo. The students sung Ninġabru Insara (O Come all ye Faithful) and Fuq tiben f'Maxtura (Away in a Manger) and they were accompanied by a small ensemble of dedicated musicians.
Prose, poetry and drama were the main items that featured during the programme.
Our last two extra-curricular activities were sandwiched between days of grey clouds and rain, yet like the November outing, last Friday, the clouds gave way and the sun smiled even if it didn't shine.
Like all past Sport Days, this year's event was marked by a great sense of competition yet without any hint of roughness or animosity among the students. It is always very nice to see boys of different Houses mingle and even form teams together thus sharing points with each other.
We consider ourselves lucky that after a week of heavy clouds, strong winds and rain, the weather was excellent for us today to organize our scheduled mid-term outings. It is part of our annual calendar to organize Cultural, Education and Recreational outings to the whole school in November.
The teachers with the help of LSA and other members of the staff plan these outings in which a particular aspect of the curriculum will be strengthened.
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.
To you all who endure life's challenges with a smile rejoice! You are among the chosen to understand the true meaning of Christmas. Be glad and spread the good news: Jesus has come!
Commit yourself with renewed determination to make His Name known so that all might be saved on the day of his second coming.
At Christmas it is love that we celebrate:
God's love for us that is so real that it became flesh and could be touched, seen and held.
It is this love and our bonds of friendship that hold us and sustain us.
The Board of Directors, the Administration Team and the Staff of St Michael School wish you all a Holy Christmas and a year of grace and blessing from our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ.
Peace be with you all.
