On Wednesday 15th November 2017, all the students form Mater Boni Consilii School celebrated Children’s Day in Mdina and Rabat.
The various classes could walk about Mdina and Mdina Ditch, visit the National History Museum, the Domus Romana or play on the swings in Howards Garden according to the different age levels.
The Secondary school girls were given the opportunity to learn in an unconventional yet adventurous way by participating in a treasure hunt, prepared especially for them by teachers from the school, in the historical city of Mdina.
Secondary school students worked in teams to answer several questions all related to several academic subjects as well as practicing skills of general knowledge and team building. Among the subjects included in the treasure hunt the students could find questions related to History, Religion, Mathematics, Italian, Comprehension skills and Maltese as well as the use of technology and different types of Media. They also practised the skills of preparing and conducting an interview whilst meeting and interviewing tourists. The students enjoyed this activity immensely and engaged with all the activities prepared for them by their teachers.
Later on during the morning, the children were given a treat organised for them by the school.
