Żgur li ma stajniex nagħlqu din is-sena skolastika b’attività isbaħ mill-water games li għamilna fl-aħħar ġurnata tal-istudenti 01/07/2014. L-istudenti kif ukoll l-istaff kienu ferm avventurużi u pparteċipaw bis-sħiħ f’dawn il-logħob, b’riżultat li kellna l-isbaħ festa tal-ilma li wieħed jista’ jimmaġina. Kellna 4 logħbiet organizzati, u fl-aħħar għalaqna b‘water fight bil-bżieżaq tal-ilma. It-tbissima fuq fomm l-istudenti, l-eċitament u l-atmosfera pożittiva li ħloqna ħallewlna togħma ħelwa li biha għalaqna din is-sena ta’ ħidma. Ir-ritratti jixhdu dan kollu!! Wara l-water games kull klassi organizzat festin ċkejken, fejn ilkoll sellimna lil xulxin u tajna l-awguri tagħna għal sajf tajjeb. Kienet tassew ġurnata memorabbli li żgur li kull parteċipant qatt mhu ser jinsa!

As its name implies, this project consisted in bringing together 6 artistic and intrinsic flavours together in one portable pack. The artistic disciplines involved consisted in the making of salt in a traditional way, olive oil, sun dried tomatoes, honey, olive leaves tea, and carobs syrup. These products were produced both at our Resource Centre Vocational Units and at our partner’s workshops.

Such project was very important for our Resource Centre for two main reasons.

1.   It gave our students the opportunity to integrate with Wardija Community therefore creating more inclusive environment.

2.   Engaged in such artistic disciplines our students enhanced their employability skills which are of utmost importance for their future especially with regards to their vocational preparation.

EkoSkola Visit to Parliament – 29.05.14

Sur President,

Nirringrazzjawk tal-istedina li għamiltilna. Aħna James Cachia u Maverick Pace qegħdin nirrappreżentaw lill-Kumitat tal-EkoSkola flimkien mal-istudenti kollha taċ-Ċentru tar-riżorsi Dun Manwel Attard il-Wardija.

Għall-ewwel darba l-Kumitat tal-Ekoskola għamel mezz li jieħu ħsieb iktar l-ambjent taċ-Ċentru. Ħdimna ħafna fuq il-ġbir u s-separazzjoni għar-riċiklaġġ tal-iskart kif ukoll ħadna ħsieb il-pjanti u s-siġar. Ħassejna wkoll li għandna nużaw il-kompost b’mod iktar regolari. Darba fil-ġimgħa niġbru l-kontejners tal-frott li jkunu tqassmu biex nkunu nistgħu nużawhom għal affarijiet oħra: biex inħalltu ż-żebgħa per eżempju. Żgħażagħ mill-Kumitat marru jiġbru x-xitel u ż-żerriegħa tal-ballut tal-Wardija biex inkunu nistgħu niżrawhom fiċ-Ċentru. Bil-ħidma kontinwa ta’ matul is-sena, laqgħat ta’ spiss u permezz tal-ideat li ħriġna bihom bħala Kumitat irnexxielna niksbu l-Green Flag għall-ewwel darba.

On Thursday 15th May, Wardija Resource Centre staff and students attended the Ta’ Qali National Stadium for a football match between the Maltese and the Turkish Under 17 sides. The UEFA (European) Under 17 Championships are being hosted in the Maltese islands for the very first time.

The majority of students and also staff members, wore red tops and Maltese football related t-shirts. Since it was sunny most students also wore caps and sun-block. At around 9.45am everyone gathered at the school foyer and by 10.00am all vans left for the stadium. The students and staff had complimentary tickets kindly donated by the Malta Football Association. At the entrance to the enclosure side of the National stadium, all students were given a small Maltese flag. For most students, this was their first time at the Maltese National stadium, making this experience a memorable one.

Following the National anthems of both Turkey and Malta, the match kicked-off at 11.00am. The atmosphere at the stadium was fantastic and exciting with our students joining the many other school children who cheered the young Maltese players with repeated chants of FORZA MALTA!

The first half was a balanced affair, although in the second period the Maltese team conceded four unlucky goals. Nevertheless, the result did not tarnish the enjoyable experience of our students who waved their flags and cheered throughout the entire match duration.

EkoSkola – GREEN FLAG AWARDED – 14.05.14

EkoSkola

Following the EkoSkola team’s participation in the running for the Centre’s first ever Green Flag and international green certification, today, the EkoSkola Committee Members met with the Green Flag jury to discuss their initiatives and hard work so far. This visit consisted in the jury meeting the EkoSkola Committee to discuss their work, progress, difficulties and overall view on the EkoSkola programme.

The whole team prepared with keen dedication for this event and participated enthusiastically during the meeting with the jury. They represented the Centre with the best of their charm and made us all very proud!

So, with great pleasure, we have just been informed that the EkoSkola National Jury has unanimously agreed to award our Resource Centre with the prestigious Green Flag Award for the first time. For the next two years we can hoist the flag on our school building, display it during school functions and in the foyer, and use the EkoSkola logo on our letterhead and other school material.

WELL DONE TO ALL INVOLVED.
