The first introductory meeting with next year's new comers and their parents was held at our school on Thursday 23rd May.
The meeting started with a session prayer at 18:30 and a short welcoming speech by Mr Tonio Callus, the Assistant Headmaster responsible for the 1st and 2nd formers. The Headmaster, Mr Raymond D'Amato, then asked Mr Ruben Pace to address the meeting on behalf of the Directors of the school board.
Our school celebrated SporTech on Friday 17th May 2013. This was another great moment in our activities calendar.
This special evening kicked off at 19:00 when teachers, parents and students alike flocked the school grounds to enjoy a myriad of events related to sports and technology that catered for different tastes: from a chess classroom buzzing with activity to technological displays on robots and photo voltaic panels; from sessions on Mathematics and Science to Computer Programming; and talks on Sports and Facebook and sports sessions. Our school was really a hub of activity.
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.
