This activity was held in our school ground. As one can see the ground's floor was turned into a road track. Students got bicycles, scooters, pushchairs and other toys to use. All students riding bikes and scooters wore helmets for protection.
To further emphasize the importance of physical activity, whilst also enhancing the cultural aspect, a Traditional Games Day was organised.

Scholastic year 2013 - 2014
Bird Boxes Bird boxes and feeders were bought and placed in the school garden. Bird boxes serve as a safe haven for numerous birds while the bird feeder supplies food for birds.
Bugs Corner Twigs, logs and dry leaves were piled up to make this wonderful home for insects.
Cleaning garden The garden was cleaned from fallen leaves and weed to make the school garden more attractive. This was done thanks to all year 6 students and the EcoSchool student’s committee.
Compost Bin The weed and leaves gathered from the garden were placed in the compost bin together with other materials, such as, vegetable trimmings, shredded newspapers, teabags and more. On the day the compost bin was started, students piled up the bin in alternate layers of green and brown material. Students in the school are encouraged to throw fruit peel and core in the green and brown bins in the yard so that the EcoSchool students can later use the material to continue their composting project.
Miniature greenhouse (Serra) Mr. Ebejer from PARKS was invited to the school to teach students how to make a miniature greenhouse using 2 plastic vegetable boxes, some velcro, a piece of plastic and 4 wooden sticks. He also gave the students 3 different seeds of trees (Għargħar, Żnuber, Balluta). The students observed the seeds and planted them in recycled cups. These were later placed in the newly made greenhouse and after months of care, we now have 44 new small trees to give to PARKS and in return the PARKS will plant a grown tree on behalf of our school.
