Students Council

During these last couple of weeks students have been preparing for the Students Council elections.  During PSD sessions students were given lessons on the democratic process of electing members of this Council.  Each prospective candidate prepared a poster to advertise the qualities that he or she had to persuade friends to vote for him or her.  These posters were exhibited in the school foyer.

Is-Servizz tan-Nurture Class

Din is-sena beda s-servizz tan-Nurture Class fl-iskola ta’ Ħal Lija. Fin-Nurture Class it-tfal isibu ambjent li jgħinhom iħossuhom tajbin magħhom infushom u milqugħa.  Huwa post fejn jingħataw iktar ħin u opportunita’ jitkellmu fuq dak li jħossu u jissudaw il-ħiliet li għandhom bżonn biex jiffaċċjaw l-isfidi tal-ħajja. Jitgħallmu l-valuri tar-rispett, l-ubbidjenza, l-imħabba u t-tolleranza f’ambjent sabih li jixbaħ lil dak tad- dar. Jaqsmu l-esperjenzi tagħhom ma’ tfal bħalhom u jaħdmu fi grupp.  Is-servizz tan-Nurture Class jgħin lill-istudenti jiżviluppaw dawk il-kwalitajiet neċessarji biex jirnexxu, u jircievu edukazzjoni sħiħa.
