Tuesday 7th March 2023 was a special day at St Michael School. Since we are during the season of Lent, the day was dedicated to spiritual exercises. This year being the 25th anniversary of the passing away of Gilbert Simiana, we shed light on his life as a faithful example and authentic witness to all students and members of staff. Gilbert died at tender age of 15, and his level of holiness and closeness to Jesus Christ still amazes us today, even during a long period of illness that caused him a lot of pain.
On the day, all Forms were assigned to a MUSEUM Centre where they heard the testimony of a person who had known or taught Gilbert Simiana. Also, reflections were shared and activities were organised for all students to be inspired and try and emulate Gilbert’s example in their personal life.
The 7th of March coincided with the anniversary of the founding of the MUSEUM by St George Preca in 1907.
