Trash, Landfill, black bags, waste, compost, incineration, decompose etc… might convey a negative image. We all do throw away things which we do not need any longer. We don’t want to see them any longer. Can you think about the people working with our trash? There are so many negative conceptions about people who work with our waste products….hear one interesting and incredible story that happened recently…..see it in story number 5.

Bejn l-erba’ ħitan tal-ħabs isiru wkoll opri ta’ ħniena bla ebda daqq ta’ trombi. TVM iltaqa’ mal-koppja Marisa u Patrick Zammit, li deħlin u ħerġin il-ħabs, mhux biex jiskontaw sentenza u lanqas biex iżuru xi qarib tagħhom, iżda biex jagħtu wens u jservu ta’ spalla għal priġunier barrani li addottaw. Għal iktar dettalji mur f’din il-Ħolqa (Storja numru 4.)

Founder of ARK (Acts of Random Kindness) Club, Sabrina Ma transformed her school with small acts of kindness. The club regularly performs creative random acts of kindness, including a kindness flash mob of smiles, hugs and connection. She started ARK with only ten fellow students but these kind acts soon inspired over 300 students to join in on the fun. The club even rippled beyond her school; soon after, 27 other schools started their own ARK clubs. Tagging each other with compliments, surprising fellow students with generosity, ARK imbues the school with positivity and joy. Just go to this link.(Story no. 3)
This year we are involved in many new exciting projects. We are trying to get funds to buy more herbs to increase the number of hedges along the footpaths of the garden. We are also trying to obtain funds to install a rainwater catchment system in the garden which will then feed the now present drip irrigation system.
We open the garden during breaks and clean it regularly. We are planning to plough the garden in the coming days. However, please feel free to use the garden in any of your lessons or meetings. There are keys in the Assistant Head’s office and also at the caretakers. We just kindly ask you to ensure that there is no vandalism and no littering.
Another project that we are working on is related to the Litter Less Campaign. We asked all students to take a selfie in a littered area and then these pictures will be used to make a collage and printed on a poster. Students who send relevant photos will be awarded 5 points in the E1.
