Cambridge Literary Festival

Cambridge Literary Festival As part of our commitment to ongoing and meaningful professional development, a group of teachers from our English team along with Ms Bernie Mizzi, attended the Cambridge Literary Festival. The visit reflects the efforts of our College to encourage a love of reading and our belief in the importance of chronicling human experience even through fiction. The author-led sessions inspired a critical consideration of how wonderful works of fiction can lead to growth and learning in the classroom. #chsmccommunity #cambridgeliteraryfestival #professionaldevelopment #learningintheclassroom

An exercise in empathy and understanding of how Jesus identifies with the pain and suffering in the world and who gives them a whole new meaning through His resurrection.

Beach Clean-up

Beach Clean-up A beach clean-up was recently organised to inculcate in Level 7 students an awareness of the imminent threat that the use of single-use plastics and their wrong disposal is causing the environment. Students together with their respective teachers and key volunteers from Din L-Art Helwa Mellieha visited Armier Bay, Little Armier Bay, White Tower Bay, and Coral Lagoon Bay for this task. Provided with gloves, pickers, and numerous bags, guided by the organisers, students spent an entire school day along the seashore cleaning the above-mentioned beaches in a thorough manner. Whilst picking up rubbish lying on the beach students kept a note of the different types they found. Amongst the most common were plastic items such as bottles and bags, cans, snack bags, paper, bottle caps, chair and table parts, rope, nets, and shoes. Students were also given a tour of the White Tower which was recently conserved. Before returning to school, the organizers informed that collectively 305 kilos of rubbish had been collected. Thank you to Daniela Cini and Albert Attard from Din L-Art Helwa Mellieha and a massive well done to all!
