On Monday our School’s Marathon Walk was held after an absence of two years. After assembly at 08:15 all the school set off for the marathon walk in lovely weather. The headmaster announced that the sum of €10,400 was collected. He thanked all the students for their commitment.
The coaches took us to Żurrieq, which was the starting point of the marathon walk. We could all enjoy a panoramic view of the surroundings. At around 09:15 it was time to set off for our walk. We proceeded towards Wardija, and we soon reached Wied Fulija. There we stopped for a short break before we continued our walk to Wied Żnuber till we reached Ħal Far where once again we stopped to eat and rest. During our walk we could enjoy the tranquillity of the Maltese countryside. It was a beautiful sight to see about 320 students and 50 members of staff walking together. At noon we reached Birżebbuġa, and the students spent time playing in the football ground. The games room of the Birżebbuġa MUSEUM was also available for those students who preferred playing indoors.
At 13:15 we left with the coaches to go back to school. Back at school, the headmaster praised the students for their excellent behaviour during the marathon walk and thanked God for another wonderful experience.
