On Thursday 17th May 2018 Mater Boni Consilii St. Joseph School Paola became the first Maltese educational institution to make use of the Finnish gamifying app Seppo. Mater Boni Consilii St. Joseph Paola, joined hundreds of other schools from different countries to make use of the SEPPO app. The Grade 2 teacher, Ms. Stephanie Saliba created a lesson using the SEPPO app to revise concepts that were mastered during Maths, English and Maltese lessons. The girls were given a number of tasks that they had to carry out to unlock the various levels in the SEPPO app. “This is not Maths, English or Maltese, this is fun!” shouted the girls at the end of the lesson. Special thanks goes to the Seppo team for their support and trust.
Headmaster Dr. Kenneth Vella would like to thank Riku Alkio and Santieri Jaakola from Seppo Finland for their support. It should be noted that 5 educators from Mater Boni Consilii will be receiving training about this gamifying app next August during their Study Tour in Tampere Finland.
