Due to the mitigation measures in place to counteract the dangers of the Covid-19 pandemic, this scholastic year saw large school gatherings, such as assemblies, being discontinued. In order to keep the channels of communication open, Educators and Senior Leadership Teams at St. Nicholas College, Rabat Middle Schools, used Microsoft Teams to reach all students, their parents/guardians, and all the staff.

During these last couple of weeks Ms. Ruth’s and Ms. Miriam’s students, at St. Nicholas College Attard Primary School, were busy learning from home. The children carried out various activities which were both fun and educational related to the Dinosaur theme and Easter time. These included sequence games, colouring eggs with food colouring, following up on a story, ‘What’s inside the Easter Egg?’ and fun with letters.
At St. Nicholas College, Attard Primary School, children in Kinder 2 had the opportunity to discuss why we are meeting up from home at the moment and not at school! This discussion took place in Ms. Vanessa’s class as a follow up to a story they had all watched together online. Pupils in kinder 2 classes experimented with letters, had scavenger hunts at home, prepared some playdough and played together virtually. Children in Ms. Kim’s class discussed the Easter story and took part in various Easter related activities. Although these activities are related to the Easter topic, children not only learned about the story of Easter, but also numbers and value, colours and colour sorting, all about shapes and also the letters ‘f’ and ‘g’ in Maltese
The students of Yr 2 at St. Nicholas College, Dingli Primary School, participated in a hands-on Mathematics activity in their homes. They practiced multiples of five using their hands, under the supervision of Ms. Kimberelene, who is working from home with them. The children put paint on their hands and made handprints on a piece of cardboard paper; then they counted and wrote the multiples of 5. The children had fun whilst learning although being stuck at home! Thank you to the parents for their on going support to make online learning possible and FUN!
Kinder 2 educators at St. Nicholas College, Attard Primary School, have been working hard delivering online sessions to their pupils who attended eagerly. They tackled mathematical concepts, discussed stories, did science experiments and participated in various hands on activities together. They even had some time for online free play which they really enjoyed! Everyone got creative to make this virtual experience one to remember 🙂!!
A great big WELL DONE our KG2 Educators, Ms. Ruth, Ms. Jackie, Ms. Miriam, Ms. Kim, Ms. Marika and Ms. Vanessa; their students, and their parents/guardians for the support !
Students at Saint Nicholas College Secondary School Ħad-Dingli have been investigating the effect of Covid-19 on the environment. Lockdowns and teleworking may be having some positive impacts on our environment. On the other hand, the use of disposal PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) has increased, creating a waste problem. At St Nicholas College Secondary School we believe that each and every one of us is responsible for conserving the environment so each and every one of us needs to act and take an active role to protect it. No use pointing fingers at other institutions – we need to take responsibility for our actions. So we decided to take action and promote the use of safe reusable masks both at school and in our community. We decided to encourage students to trash disposable masks and use reusable masks that follow WHO safety criteria. This is how the campaign My Mask – I Care came about.
What does the campaign involve?
· Students researched the impact of Covid 19 on the environment and presented their findings during school assemblies.
· A facebook challenge was created encouraging students, parents and friends to post photos of their reusable masks. The challenge is available on the school facebook page and was shared on the facebook pages of the local councils of Ħad-Dingli and Ħ’Attard in order to spread the message among our community.
· A campaign video was created and submitted for UNESCO and FEE’s Trash Hack campaign.
· Safe reusable masks following WHO’s safety standards are being sewn and will be given to students. This was possible with the collaboration of the local councils of Ħ’Attard and Ħad-Dingli
With the closure of the educational institutions, the Klabb 3-16 in the centers too had to be suspended. To make up for this interruption in service, the Foundation for Educational Services is offering service users the possibility of following online activities with the Playworkers of their centers, and live HW assistance with warranted teachers.
Parents / legal guardians who are already registered for the service, and would like their children to follow the online activities, are to contact the Centre Coordinator of their respective center and inform him, so that they will be given a link to access the activities. The same applies for the LIVE online HW assistance.
Parents / legal guardians who are not registered with the service, are encouraged to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be guided on how to apply for the service.
These two modes of communication are being offered in a bid to maintain contact with the students, and also help them with their academic work. All the services are being offered free of charge, including the HW assistance.
