The sponsored marathon walk that is annually organized by the Council, was held on Friday, April 29th, in a splendid spell of fine weather. Students had also collected funds and sponsors prior to the walk.
All students, together with staff members, departed for St. Martin’s grotto at around 10a.m. and walked around the surrounding Wardija countryside for about an hour. Holy Mass was celebrated in the grotto by Fr. D. Bellizzi and was animated with various hymns.
After Mass, the ‘Award for Kindness’, that has now been established in the calendar of events, followed. This year, Alison Bugeja of Group C2 was rewarded for her kindness and good deeds. Ms. C. Barbara, her group teacher mentioned the salient positive points that led to her achievement. Accompanied by the Council’s President, Ms. M-V Farrugia, the Head of the Resource Centre, Mr. A. Galea, and her parents, the student was then presented with a commemorative certificate and donated an award by her group staff.
All students walked back to the Centre after this presentation.
