St. Nicholas College is pleased to announce that two of our schools – Ħad-Dingli Primary and Secondary Schools respectively – have been shortlisted for the Young Reporters for the Environment competition. The international jury will now be held in September – but in the meantime we need to share and “enjoy” the Maltese ones to get more points for the final.
Simply click on the “Enjoy” button on the upper right corner and share it with your friends. You have five votes at most for each entry! Enjoy the beautiful works, find your favourite, and help them to highlight their amazing work!
For the past three years, St. Nicholas College has participated in the Erasmus+ Project, Leadership for Change. The Project brought together schools from Malta, Belgium, Italy, Portugal and Spain.
The Learning Leadership for Change (L2C) project aims to move towards shared leadership, fostering a new culture in schools in which teachers, students and potentially parents willingly take responsibility for leadership in the school community. Evidence from research indeed shows that collaborative decision- making processes in schools can positively affect students’ learning. The project then encourages the dissemination and mainstreaming of school leadership-innovative practices and effective networking through capacity-building (self-assessment, training and sharing of best practices) within three key areas linked to the strategic development of the school: STEM education, Innovative use of ICT in teaching and Digital Citizenship.
Students from Rabat Middle School and Dingli Secondary school have made TV Headlines thanks to their participation in the Climate Detectives Project, which is hosted by the European Space Agency. Watch this short clip, produced by One TV, which describes their project as well as their meeting with Minister for Education and Employment, Dr. Owen Bonnici.
St. Nicholas College Science and Geography Departments (Rabat Middle School and Dingli Secondary School respectively), have prepared a report on how climate, mainly rainfall and temperature, can impact water flow and farming in Qlejgħa Valley, Malta. The report, and accompanying video, was submitted on the ESA Website – European Space Agency– for the Climate Detectives@Home project. The project challenges students to monitor our planet from home by looking from above! Participants are encouraged to find an Earth observation image, describe it and link it to a climate problem.
