It was on 9th May 2001 when St John Paul II declared Fr George Preca Blessed. It was Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI who later canonized Fr George Preca on 3rd June 2012 but retained the date of 9th May as the feast day of St George Preca.
Thus on Tuesday 9th, besides the Eucharistic Celebration we decided to organize a full-day of special events for our students which consisted of twenty different workshops, all of which are not part of our daily curriculum.
At 08:00 we all gathered for a well prepared a thanks giving celebration at our School Hall.
After a short break, the students headed to start the first two of four one-hour workshops held in the classrooms, hall, Science, Computer and Food Labs. Between the second and the third session, everyone gathered in the school garden to eat baked macaroni and an ice-cream, freely provided by the school.
The following where the themes that were dealt with during the workshops: Audio Visual Mixing; Baking and Cooking; Curiosity Quest; Ejjew Nagħmlu Tajra; Films in Malta; Hobbies; Imparando Giocando; Lego Robotics; L-Għasafar f’Malta; Medieval Re-enactment; Pawn Challenge; Pellikola; Photo hunt; SDC Missions; Soap Making; Xita ta’ Kuluri, You & Your Camera and a football tournament.
It wasn’t an easy job for the coordinating team to organize the event and to assign to each student the preferred workshop. As the day progressed, all the teachers and students were happy with the event and the whole school was vibrant with activities.
