Earth Day Celebration with a Difference – May 2021

On Wednesday 12th May 202, Mater Boni Consilii St Joseph School Paola celebrated Earth Day with a difference. The theme chosen for this year was the Benefits of Honey from Bees. The programme started off with the Earth day song – Makjetta by Krista Pisani a student in Grade 6. Then each class had various activities around the theme of the Bee ranging from cooking to craft activities as well as storytelling and examining the bee activities in class. All classes had the opportunity to follow a presentation by a leading Maltese Beekeeper and researcher Mr. Arnold Grech MQR as well as an exhibition of bees which was the highlight of this morning’s activities. Special thanks go to the Eko Skola Team, Ms Christine Mallia, Ms Madeleine Agius Carbonaro as well as Ms Lycia Bezzina, who organised and coordinated this morning’s activities as well as to the other members of staff for facilitating the smooth running of the programme prepared.
