Animal Awareness Day

Animal Awareness Day 2016

Animal Awareness Day was celebrated at our school on Tuesday the 4th of October.  We chose to celebrate and promote love and respect towards animals during this particular day since the 4th of October is the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment.    

The parents were asked to bring the children’s pets to school.

After a short prayer, Fr Emanuel Schembri blessed the animals and their young owners.

This activity proved to be a wonderful opportunity to instil in our young pupils some very important values, such as the importance of loving and caring for animals.
