The National Literacy Agency, within the Ministry for Education, invites students sitting for the Maltese SEC exam in 2022 to attend a short course in Maltese on Maltese spelling rules. This course is aimed at those students who would like to keep up to date with Maltese spelling and grammar rules.

L-Investigaturi tal-Mużika – part of the MPO’s continuous efforts to bring music closer to younger audiences – is an edutainment series of 15-minutes episodes delving into aspects of orchestral music.
Introducing Allegra and Strauss, the two inquisitive young investigators seek to discover this genre through a number of set missions forwarded to them by ‘the expert’. Their adventures cover a wide range of subjects: composers, instruments, techniques, and genres amongst others.
Allegra and Strauss meet The Scientist, who explains to them scientific principals involved in creating and listening to music.
This project is presented in collaboration with The Ministry of Education

The Commissioner for Animal Welfare, Ms. Alison Bezzina, has recorded a 5-minute message (in both Maltese and English) for PSCD Educators to show their students attending Years 4 – 6 during their lessons. The messages can be downloaded here:
Furthermore, the Office of the Commissioner for Animal Welfare has published a bilingual publication aimed at Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 to be distributed free to every child in these groups when the video clip is shown in class. Schools are to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating how many copies of books are required and these will be delivered to schools for free. Orders need to be sent by Thursday 29th April 2021 with delivery to be expected in May and until stocks last, on a first come first served basis.
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.
We have compiled a list of websites with activities for Kindergarten and Primary School Students, featuring a list of fun activities that can be done with children during the Easter Holidays. Some feature online games, others have printable activities which can be done by students. For younger KG students, there are some fun craft activities, too. Click on the website names below to view access the sites!
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!
