On Wednesday 25th February, a group of students were chosen to visit the Xemxija Hill. This visit makes part of the Dinja Waħda project in which its aim is to increase awareness of the local environment that surround us. The students had the opportunity to walk among different trees, plants and flowers that are found in this area. They had the opportunity to enjoy the view of Buġibba and Qawra underneath. There was a particular cave in which people used to live during the Second World War. There was another room in which many years ago, people used to make honey. We also came across a large amount of ants which were carrying food and hide it in the soil in a particular area.
Our second SDP for this scholastic year was held on Friday 13th February, 2015 at our Resource Centre.

Il-bidu tas-sena ġabet magħha l-bidu ta’ proġett ieħor fiċ-Ċentru ta’ Riżorsi – dak tat-tablets, fejn ħames studenti, li ġew identifikati minn qabel permezz ta’ kriterji riġidi, qed jiġu mgħallma bl-użu ta’ tablets Android u iPads. Dan il-proġett huwa parti minn proġett akbar fuq livell nazzjonali. It-tablets qed jiġu introdotti waqt il-lezzjonijiet tad-digital competence, literacy u numeracy. Numru ta’ adattamenti kellhom jiġu utilizzati biex it-tablets ikunu aktar aċċessibbli għall-istudenti taċ-Ċentru, fosthom mountings, biex it-tablet jiġi marbut u mqabbad ma’ mejda jew wheelchair; Big Grips; u diversi switches. Ta’ min jgħid ukoll li barra mill-proġett, fuq inizjattiva ta’ għalliema u LSA tal-Computer Lab, dawn it-tablets qed jiġu utilizzati wkoll minn studenti oħra waqt midday break activities imħejjija apposta biex tingħata opportunità lil numru akbar ta’ studenti li jesperjenzaw din it-teknoloġija moderna.
