On Monday 18th May a group of students, together with their parents, attended a workshop regarding the use of tablets and internet safety.
The talk on internet safety was carried out by Ms Deborah Vassallo from Appogg. She explained the importance of the internet and risks associated to its’ use, including self-exposure, cyber-bullying, and pornography. The talk was of interest to those attending who asked relevant questions.
Following the talk, the ICT team conducted a demonstration on the use of tablets. All students were given a tablet to use together with their respective mothers. Android / Ipad tablets were chosen prior to session according to the student’s needs. During the session, basic concepts of use were demonstrated and students had the opportunity to explore the tablet and try out various tools and apps. Both students and parents showed interest and participated enthusiastically
The Centre’s 5 students participating in the Duke of Edinburgh Award participated in their much anticipated Adventurous Journey on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th May 2015. The students’ enthusiasm throughout this exciting camping adventure was palpable and they worked with great stamina and determination as a team to succeed on this valuable mission. During the activity, they pitched their own tents independently as a group, they planned out their route and carried out exploratory work to observe flora and fauna in the Majjistral Park, they cooked their own meals on camping stoves and they took part in engaging activities that brought them all together as a team. Throughout the year, the students had worked with great dedication towards preparing for this Adventure and their efforts ultimately paid off. Their energy throughout this unique quest was vibrant and the satisfaction from successfully carrying out this mission is an award that will last them a lifetime!
