My Mask – I Care Challenge!

In order to mitigate the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have found ourselves wearing face masks all the time, even if we are, say, alone in the country side. Some people opt to buy disposable face masks, which in turn, can cause problems of their own. On an average day, one may go through 1-3 face masks, thus causing quite a lot of litter! And the worst thing is that some of these masks are ending up improperly discarded and littering our towns and countryside.

To raise awareness about the issue, Dingli Secondary School have issued a Facebook Challenge, in a bid to promote the use of re-usable cloth masks. Just take a picture of yourself wearing a cloth mask, and upload it on Dingli Secondary School’s Facebook Page. (If you’re shy or don’t want to appear on Facebook, just take a pic of your mask). Finally, don’t forget to share the competition post on your Facebook Profile too! (If you’re too young to have a Facebook profile, you can ask your parents or siblings to post the picture and share the post on their own profile).

This competition is open to all College students and staff, Primary, Middle and Secondary Schools.

By participating in this Challenge, you can also win a 10 Euro Voucher from A to Z electronics!

The competion is part of Trash Hack (joint venture Ekoskola/Unesco) and Young reporters for the Environment.

Safer Internet Day Activities at Rabat Primary School

Students and Educators at St. Nicholas College, Rabat Primary School, prepared a series of activities to celebrate Internet Safety Day. These included:

  • KG 2.3 Students listened to the story, ‘Ir-Rigal’. They noted how they could not access the teachers’ computer without a password; thus learning about the importance of not disclosing their own passwords to others. They also learned about other personal information that they should not be disclosing online to others, such as their addresses. Finally, they were reminded that as young children they always need to have an adult with them (such as their parents) when accessing the internet.
  • Year 4.2 Students designed their own ‘Internet Safety’ Posters.
  • Year 4.1 Students discussed eSafety rules and produced their own bookmarks to remind themselves of how they can stay safe online. They also learned to identify unsafe situations and to speak up if something happens that concerns or upsets them.
  • Year 3.3 Students watched a PowerPoint presentation and saw some bookmarks that helped them understand how to keep themselves safe when using the Internet. The students also enjoyed doing the puzzle about Internet Safety.
  • Ms. Christine Vassallo, Nurture Class Teacher, also organised an eSafety Online Session for the whole school.
