Tuesday 19th December – A number of 280 students accompanied by members of staff worked on activities to give services and make a difference in other people’s lives. Our school band and some other students visited Rainbow Ward and sang songs for the sick children. Another group went to Dar tal-Kleru to visit old priests and another group went to Apap Institute and organised a tombola for the old people residing at the home.
Another group gathered in the Home Economics Lab to bake muffins for a cake sale. The money collected from this sale was donated to Dar Bjorn. A group of students went to the Malta International Airport to distribute Christmas cards to the tourists arriving to Malta or departing back to their country, another group went to Ċentru Loop to prepare presents and decorate and help in Marta’s kitchen, another group went to Dar il-Ħanin Samaritan to pick up oranges from the garden and sell these oranges. The money collected was donated to Dar il-Ħanin Samaritan. Another group of students remained at school and organised a car wash to collect money to buy the gifts for the tombola while another four groups organised a clean up at school, at the Tomasina cat sanctuary, and at Xgħajra and Qajjenza beaches.
We congratulate these students who commit themselves to organise these acts of generosity. This is how we should celebrate Christmas. We wish them the wisdom to keep up these experiences as they grow up. We thank our Pastoral Care team who co-ordinated these voluntary activities and the members of staff who accompanied them.
