On Saturday, 5th August we spent a day in Sicily together with Year 9, 10 and 11 students who obtained the most positive reports during the last scholastic year.
At 4am we met at the Malta International Airport for our flight to Catania at 6am. When we arrived we had breakfast in Catania at Piazza Duomo and visited the Cathedral dedicated to Saint Agatha. Soon after we headed to Mount Etna where we had time to explore the area and enjoy the spectacular views of the surroundings. Later we left for lunch at Giardini Naxos and then we visited the much awaited valley of Gole Alcantara. This botanic park is a valley surrounded by geological cliffs. Our students had time to enjoy a dip in the freezing water coming from the Alcantara valley. We then spent the rest of the day at Acrireale and had time to enjoy a delicious ice-cream at Villa Belvedere. After we left for the airport and arrived in Malta at around 1am. Our students were tired but happy to have spent a lovey day together.
We would like to thank Mr Tabone and Mr Aquilina, our Year 9, 10 and 11 assistant heads who organised this visit, the staff members who accompanied the group and the parents who give their consent to these students to participate in the activities organised by the school.
