This was the third eTwinning project that our school held with l'Istituto Comprensivo Valle Dei Laghi and this year's project dealt mainly with themes related to history and culture.
After our visit to Vezzano in April, it was now the turn of the Italian students to come to visit us. Their visit started on Monday 13th May early in the afternoon.
About five weeks ago, our school was invited to take part in an International tournament of volleyball in Poland aimed mainly for small teams of secondary school students. Three of our Fourth Formers, together with a member of the staff flew to Krakow on the 1st of May and returned a week later on Wednesday 8th May 2013.
On the special occasion of our school's Founder Day, we had today, the opportunity to welcome among us a very special guest in the person of H.E. Bishop Charles Scicluna who came to our school to concelebrate Mass with Fr Carl Sultana, our resident priest.
Before Mass, Mgr. Scicluna had the occasion to meet Mr Ruben Pace, chairperson of our school's Board of Directors and Mr Emanuel Curmi, Regional Superior for the SDC in Malta. The Bishop was also welcomed by the Students' Council, Prefects and members from the EkoSkola committee.
Now that the last ballot, specifying the rank order of the students who will next year be attending one of the Church Secondary schools was conducted, we thought it was fitting to hold a special meeting for all those parents and students who would like to come to know us better.
The turnout for this orientation talk and visit was substantial, in fact the school hall was packed and as the Headmaster spoke of our school Ethos and Mission Statement, the parents were invited to think about the real reasons why they should opt to have their son studying at a Church school.
