After three years of hard work, Teach Inspire and Protect Project 2018-2021, an outdoor learning project kindly co-funded by ERASMUS+, comes to an official end on the 25th November 2021 but its impact will last for ever. Thanks to many hard-working people, children today come to school with a beaming face knowing that their learning is going to be fun. Let us walk you through this unforgettable experience to show you how our school was transformed !
This is the second stage of our project which focused on the enhancement of our outdoor spaces making them stimulating and conducive to child-led outdoor learning.
As students transition from primary school to middle school, from middle school to secondary school and from secondary school to post-secondary school they are often faced with social, emotional and physiological changes that can impact on their wellbeing and learning. Aġenzija Żgħażagħ is offering three programmes that can help facilitate a smoother transition from one school to another. These programmes were designed specifically to be fun and interactive while catering for the needs of these students and to provide the necessary life skills through which students can maintain their wellbeing and learning. These programmes are being offered both online and face to face.
