More Activities at Home for the students of SNC Attard Primary School

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

Learning from home can be fun too!!! 🙂🙂

ĠEMMA FTIT – Financial Literacy Online Interactive Play and Webinar

The Department of Accounting, Business Studies and Retail within the Directorate for Learning and Assessment Programmes in collaboration with ĠEMMA is inviting students in Years 9, 10 and 11 to take part in the online Interactive Play called ĠEMMA FTIT. The objective of the play is that of educating teens on the importance of money management – why one should budget, managing spending, the importance of differentiating between needs and wants, earning income and using it wisely, setting financial goals and saving for them amongst others. Furthermore, the play highlights the importance of decision making which often impact our future both regarding the financial aspect as well as career progression. Every decision taken carries a situation which poses some questions to viewers thus there is an interaction between the play and viewers.

Teachers are being encouraged to make students aware of this play and carry out a lesson about the importance of money management following the delivery of the online play in class. Link for the GEMMA FTIT play:


Interested students are then invited to participate in a webinar with a representative from ĠEMMA and the Department of Accounting, Business Studies and Retail to discuss and share ideas on what they learnt from the play.
