The Wardija Visual Approach Working Group was launched today, March 25th at our Resource Centre. This group was formed thanks to a collaborative effort between the ASST (Autism Spectrum Support Team) and ACTU (Access to Communication and Technology Unit) staff, the Resource Centre’s Occupational and Speech therapists and members of staff to promote a more visual environment in the Centre.
The group is composed of Ms A Gauci and Ms E Pisani (ASST), Ms K Busuttil (Speech & Language Pathologist), Ms E Zahra (ACTU/ Occupational Therapist), Ms A Tanti, Mr S Cutajar, Ms C M Pace Gellel (Teachers) and Ms A-M Vassallo, Ms M Falzon and Ms M Olivari (LSAs). They are to ensure smooth co-ordination for the implementation of a better environment, visually.
A Turkish delegation from ARKeurope visited our Resource Centre this morning. The delegation was led by Ms Marika Fenech representing the Maltese Host organization. Mr Vincent Borg (Consultant within the Education Ministry), Ms Mervin Vella (Service Manager Special Education & Resource Centres) and Mr Anthony Galea Head of Resource Centre welcomed the delegation and gave a thorough explanation about the programme adopted at the Resource Centre.
CARNIVAL PAINTING AND CRAFT COMPETITION 2011
The Prize Giving Ceremony for the CARNIVAL PAINTING AND CRAFT COMPETITION 2011 took place on Friday 4th March at 10.30 a.m. at the Foyer of the Education Directorates, Floriana.
Four students from our Resource Centre together with two members of staff attended this Prize Giving ceremony and all students were presented their certificate of participation.
Five (5) students from our Resource Centre were selected to support the Women’s National team who played Georgia in a European qualifier. The match was played on a beautiful sunny day on March 3rd, at the local Centenary Stadium in Ta’ Qali.
Our students were very enthusiastic and held banners as well as the local flag amid chants of “Forza Malta”. The students were accompanied by Mr P Demanuele (PE teacher) and Mr S Cutajar (PSD teacher). For some of the students this was their first ever experience in a football stadium and they enjoyed themselves very much showing keen interest to learn more about the game of football. Luckily, the Malta girls deservedly won this match with a late injury-time goal, much to delight of those present, including many other students from local Primary and Secondary schools.
Result: Malta 1 Georgia 0
