Autism Awareness Day

Since Autism Awareness Day came on Saturday 2nd April, we decided to organize our school activities on Friday.  The staff came to school dressed in blue and our students were given the opportunity to learn more about Autism throughout the day.  We started off with a special Assembly that introduced the subject to the students and made them aware of the difficulties children with this condition face.

Dinja Waħda

Our school is carrying out Dinja Waħda, BirdLife Malta’s education programme that connects children to nature and instills values, knowledge and skills that will empower them to live in a better balance with the environment now and in the future.

Lija-Balzan-Iklin is a gold award winner in Dinja Waħda and this year is expanding its involvement to include a cross-curricular nature garden for all-school participation. The photo shows an artist’s impression of a nature area that will be used by all the year groups, each creating a section of the whole project.
