On Tuesday, 23rd May, three Eco-School students from our school left for Prague, in Czech Republic to attend a GLOBE Conference.
On Wednesday they visited the local main attractions of the city and saw the Jewish synagogues, cemeteries and quarters. They also visited the Church dedicated to Our Lady of Victory in Malá Strana where they saw the devoted statue of Baby Jesus of Prague.
The Conference which was held at the Faculty of Science in the Charles University in Prague took place on Thursday. Our students made their presentation of the study they carried out on Air Quality. On Friday, together with another school from Ireland they took part in a study about aerosols, an apparatus which measures air particles. After the Conference they visited the Museum of Natural History and other attractions around the city. Our students returned to Malta on Saturday.
This was a memorable experience for our students and for us as a school. We were the first Maltese group who took part in this type of Conference. Our students had the opportunity to make new friends and enrich their experience academically even through their presentation at this International Conference.
We congratulate Jerome Carabott, Matthew Sammut and Scott Tabone for the study they carried out and for their participation in this Conference. We would also like to thank Joseph Savona, co-ordinator of the Eco-School committee and Darren Bugeja for accompanying these students during this visit.
