In an effort to promote fitness and instil awareness on the importance of exercise for a healthy lifestyle, the Resource Centre organizes a yearly sponsored walk. This activity has been going on for a number of years. This year’s Sponsored Walk was held on Friday 24th April, 2015. The great majority of students, accompanied by staff and parents, walked from the Resource Centre through the countryside of Wardija, up to St. Martin’s Cave.  This is almost a fifty-five minute walk.  When all were gathered at the cave, Mass was celebrated by Fr Donald Bellizzi and animated by the Centre’s choir. The statue of the Virgin Mary was crowned with a special wreath for the occasion.

Premju Ġieħ l-Artiġjanat Malti – 09.04.15

Premju Ġieħ l-Artiġjanat Malti

L-inizjattivà magħrufa bħala Premju Ġieħ l-Artiġjanat Malti ilha tiġi organizzata mid-Dipartiment tal-Kummerċ mill-2010. Dan il-Premju jippremja erba’ sotto kategoriji kif jidher hawn taħt:

Kategorija 1: Hija miftuha għall-prodotti artiġjanali li jkunu aġġudikati skont il-livell ta’ innovazzjoni u kreattività tagħhom;

Kategorija 2: Inizzjativi Artiġjanali;

Kategorija 3: Premju għall-Inklussività u l-Integrazzjoni;

Kategorija 4: Rikonoxximent għall-Ħidma fl-Artiġjanat.

Bħala ċentru ta’ Riżorsa aħna ġejna ppremjati fil-Kategorija 3: Premju għall-Inkussività u l-Integrazzjoni wara li kkompetejna b’suċċess ma’ entitajiet oħra fil-qasam tal-Artiġjanat u l-Integrazzani.

F’din il-kompetizzjoni entitajiet publiċi u privati kellhom l-opportunità jippreżentaw inizzjattiva li toħloq prodott f’ambjent inklussiv u li jippromovi l-integrazzjoni ta’ persuni vulnerabli. F’din is-sotto kategorija ppreżentajna inizzjattiva ta’ prodotti artiġjanali relatati mat-tiġijiet. Preżentament din l-inizzjattiva saret parti integrali mill-programm edukattiv tal-istudenti tagħna li qiegħda ssaħħah il-ħiliet li tant għandhom bżonn fis-suq tax-xogħol.

Ġejna ppremjati b’dan il-premju mhux biss għax qegħdin nipproduċu prodotti artiġjanali ta’ kwalità iżda wkoll għax qegħdin nipproduċuhom b’mod sostenibbli. L-akbar sodisfazzjon li tana dan il-premju huwa bla dubju l-fatt li dak li qegħdin jipproduċu l-istudenti tagħna jirrifletti l-ħiliet li għalkemm huma differenti, huma kbar u apprezzati mhux biss mill-qraba u aħna li naħdmu magħhom iżda anke fuq skala Nazzjonali bħal ma’ jixgħed dan il-premju. L-aħħar u mhux l-anqas, premju bħal dan iġiegħel lilna bħala edukaturi napprezzaw aktar il-ħidma tagħna mal-istudenti biex inkomplu ntejbulhom il-kwalità tal-ħajja tagħhom.
