The Wardija staff were involved in a team building workshop to strengthen teamwork and respect between colleagues. The workshop was addressed by Ms Rachel Micallef and involved creative and physical actions which all led to understand more the importance of respect and teamwork while delivering a task. This workshop was another milestone to the Wardija staff and this shows that all the professionals are always willing to improve their skills and knowledge to deliver the best environment for teaching within our Resource Centre.
Today Group 8 and Group 1 students visited the Science Expo at MCAST Paola. The students had the chance to observe a number of experiments prepared by students from different schools. These experiments were related to the importance of saving water, to how long does it take for the different plastic garbage bags to degrade in different environments and to the vital use of solar panels. There was also an exhibition about cars and their features such as engine, horn and indicators by the Armed Forces of Malta. The visit ended up by a session where a number of experiments were carried out together with students.

Illum 4 ta’ Marzu kellna laqgħa fuq il-ħela ta’ ikel mill-Wasteserv. Din il-laqgħa kienet fuq kif aħna nistgħu nnaqqsu milli narmu ikel żejjed, billi ma nixtrux ħafna ikel żejjed, li ma nsajrux ħafna ikel żejjed. Iddiskutejna wkoll kif il-ħela tal-iskart iħalli effett ħażin fuq l-ambjent bħall-ħela ta’ ilma kif ukoll iżjed gassijiet velenużi fl-atmosfera li jikkawżaw tibdil fil-klima.
