AN EVENTFUL AND FRUITFUL SECOND TERM
During this second term, the Dinja Wahda Mid-day break activity group was bursting with activities. As you may see in the photos we finished our notice board. Here is how it looked at the beginning of the second term. Since then, we’ve changed the view, added more observations and news updates! Have a peak at our very own ‘Nature Planet’ on your way to the playground next time you pass by!
We’re continuously adding observations for the activity Bird Days. As Nature settles into spring, some birds are migrating back to their countries as Malta’s tempratures rise! Watch some Year 4 members discussing their work and bird migration (see photos) Speaking of bird migration, we had the honour, this term, of presenting our very own play about this theme to none other than his excellency… the President of Malta, Hon. George Abela during his visit in March. We also got to have a private talk with him afterwards where we presented him with a signed copy of the script. Check out the photos of this special occasion!
During March, we launched two campaigns: Join the Club – where we had a good number of students subscribing to the Huttafa magazine and who also became members of Klabb Huttaf, and Foster a Forest. The school has also subscribed for the first time and a special section with Il-Huttafa magazines will soon be set up in the library.
A big thanks goes to all of you…yes YOU for donating tens of cents for a great cause. As a school we’ve collected 240 euro towards the fostering of a good number of square metres of Foresta 2000. All classes contributed generously, however Ms Sue’s Year 3 class and Mr Chircop’s Year 5 class deserved a special token for collecting more than the rest of the classes. A special thank you also goes to Leah Borg Millo and Emma Marie Bugeja (both from Year 4 Bluebells) for filling up one form each.
Last but not least, our school has participated in the Walk for Nature – a 10km walk from the Roman Villa in Rabat to Xemxija. Many participated enthusiastically. Read the press release by Bird Life and note our Dinja Wahda Rangers in action! We have collected 168 euro! Well done girls!
Just this week we received the results for the Dear Minister competition. Everybody played their part in writing inspiring letters. The best 3 from around 90 entries were chosen and sent to Bird Life and guess what …our school won! The hearing will be held on Wednesday 8th May. We will announce the winners and the girls representing our school shortly! A special certificate was awarded to Year 4 Roses and Year 4 Sunflowers for participating so enthusiastically! Keep it up!
