Last update: The group from Dijon returned early in the afternoon of Saturday, thus bring an end to a very positive learning experience.
The last three days were also very full. On Thursday the group started off once more by attending two last language sessions and then dined at the school canteen. The school’s administration found our group to be very well prepared and felt that they should recognise this by giving each member of the group a certificate of excellence.
During these special occasions, we are trying to showcase a number of daily activities that happen during a particular scholastic year. During the past few years we dedicated special evening to exhibit what goes on during our sports, science, chess, drama and art lessons. Now it was time to focus on literature and music. Although music is thought only at appreciation level, language and literature are an integral part of our curriculum. During this special evening we celebrated works by a number of writers and poets in the five languages that are taught at our school: Maltese, English, Italian, French and German.
To marathon or not to marathon, that was the question!
As grey clouds loomed on top of our heads, the Headmaster had to decide whether to postpone or go ahead with the day’s event, our annual Marathon Walk.
After some consultation and a final look at the weather report, the Headmaster decided that we can proceed with the day’s event with some minor changes to the route. We wanted to make it easy for the couches to reach us quickly in case the weather really turned bad.
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
