Vincitori della Caccia al Tesoro 2018 a La Valletta (Winners of the 2018 Treasure Hunt in Valletta)

Our school placed first, among 17 State, Church and Independent Senior schools in the “Caccia al Tesoro – Malta e Italia: Lingua, arte e storia a La Valletta” – a treasure hunt around Valletta organised by the Italian and History departments within the Directorate for Learning and Assessment programmes.

Well done to the participants and their teachers.

1st and 3rd in the Malta Robotics Olympiad 2018 – Lego Sumo Challenge

Six teams from Maria Regina College Mosta Secondary participated in the Malta Robotics Olympiad 2018 – Lego Sumo Challenge on Friday 20th April, mentored by Mr Joseph Vella and assisted by Ms Marisa Bugeja. Being their first time, the students’ expectations were low, but the excitement, team spirit and support was impressively high. The challenge consisted of building a 15cm by 15cm robot from Lego parts and program it to autonomously detect and push an opponent out of an 80cm diameter ring. Seven students from Computing Year 10 classes formed two teams and prepared for the challenge during mid-day breaks.  Computing Year 9 students formed 4 teams and worked on the task as part of their coursework. Participating in this big event is already a thrill … watching one of the Year 9 teams getting through bravely to the 3rd place after being knocked out by their Year 10 friends in the semi-finals is a shiver … and then watching the Year 10 team winning the MRO18 Lego Sumo Challenge is a blast.

We hope that this opportunity to come together as schools under one tent, thanks to Mr James Catania (EO ICT) and Mr Josmar Borg (EO Computing) who organised the event, will be offered again next year. We all hope more teams take part in similar events to experience one of a kind emotions of such a learning challenge.

We do congratulate all participants while hoping that together with their keen supporters they cherish this unique experience. Thanks for inspiring us.
