Transition Programme to Level 9

Transition Programme to Level 9 As part of the transition programme to Level 9, our Level 8 students enjoyed an end-of-year activity today as they prepare to move on from Middle School to Senior School. They played dodge ball, relay, parachute, form a word and had a snack together. They were also introduced to Mr Andre Seguna – Senior Leader of Senior School and Mr Kurt Cini – Level 9 Leader. Earlier this week they were also given an introduction to the Senior School followed by a Q&A session with Level 9 students. We wish all Level 8 students the best of luck for this exciting milestone in their educational journey!

World Ocean Day

World Ocean Day Today on WORLD OCEAN DAY Neil Agius was welcomed once again to Chiswick House School. Our pupils exhibited their countless posters and proudly presented their pledges, the one positive thing they promise to do for the good of our sea which they will continue doing in their everyday lives. Neil Agius was amazed at how many pupils and teachers joined the wave and encouraged more pupils to do the same. Neil Aguis – the founder of Wave of Change @waveofchangemalta last year swam from Linosa to Gozo, a record of 125.6km completed in just over 52 hours. He continues to inspire people to help our oceans by picking up 6 pieces of litter and encouraging others to do the same. No one can do everything but everyone can do something!

Outing Gnejna Bay

Outing Gnejna Bay Geography students from Levels 9 and 10 visited Gnejna Bay, to carry out an investigation on coastal processes as an extension of their in-school learning. They analysed the results of the erosional and depositional processes, that they learnt about in class. Students also learnt to use a variety of instruments, including a clinometer, to collect data. They calculated the gradient of the beach, analysed the size and shape of sediment and measured the speed of longshore drift. An excellent hands-on learning experience.

Further and Higher Education in France

Further and Higher Education in France A group of students from St Martin’s College Sixth Form recently attended a conference at the University of Malta on the opportunities of further and higher education in France. The conference was organised by the French Embassy in Malta and the University of Malta. A representative of Campus France, the French agency responsible for the promotion of international mobility in France, presented several reasons why students should choose to study in France. Apart from offering a world class education, Universities in France are reasonably-priced and many courses are also state-funded. Students may read for their bachelor, master or doctorate degree in a wide variety of subjects ranging from art and architecture to medicine and law. Many of these courses are being offered in English, thus eliminating the language barrier for students who have a fair knowledge of French. The International Office at the UoM explained the ERAMUS project and the benefits for students taking on the opportunity to spend a whole semester studying in a foreign university. The conference ended with the testimonials of three Maltese students who have studied/worked in France. This gave our students a clear vision of what challenges youngsters may face but also all the opportunities that come with such an experience in France. After the conference, participants were invited to taste typical French “viennoiseries” which our students truly enjoyed. Students were accompanied by Ms Karen Camilleri, teacher of French at St Martin’s College Sixth Form.
