Pyjama Day

Friday 22nd January

Students look forward to pyjama days at school. Kids like to show off their pyjamas while admiring everyone else’s. It gives them another reason to look forward to school.

On Friday 22nd January the School Council suggested that the students come to school wearing their pyjamas or tracksuit (not uniform tracksuit) against a donation of 1 Euro. Money will be collected in a container at the school entrance before students put on the hand sanitizer. 

L-istudenti kollha jkunu eċitati għal dik il-ġurnata meta jkunu jistgħu jmorru l-iskola bil-piġama. It-tfal jieħdu gost jiġu l-iskola juru l-piġama tagħhom u jammiraw il-piġami differenti ta’ tfal oħra. Din il-ġuranta tagħtihom raġuni oħra biex jattendu b’entużjażmu.

Il-Ġimgħa 22 ta’ Jannar, il-Kunsill Skolastiku ssuġġerixxa li l-istudenti jiġu l-iskola libsin il-piġama jew tracksuit (mhix tal-uniformi) u jagħtu donazzjoni ta’ Ewro. Il-flus jinġabru ġo kontenitur waqt li t-tfal ikunu deħlin l-iskola, u wara jiddiżinfettaw idejhom bhas-soltu. 

Il-Ġimgħa 22 ta’ Jannar

Bħala ‘fund raising’ għall-iskola, dis-sena ħsibna biex min jixtieq jieħu ritratt ma’ Father Christmas. Ir-ritratti meħuda ser iżommu mal-linji gwida tad-dipartiment tas-saħħa fejn l-istudent u Father Christmas ser ikunu libsin il-maskra u t-tnejn ser iżommu d-distanza soċjali waqt li jittieħed ir-ritratt. Dan se jsir f’dawn id-dati:

18 ta’ Diċembru 2020: Klassijiet tal-Kindergarten

21 ta’ Diċembru 2020: Klassijiet tal-Primarja

F’dawn iż-żewġ d-dati l-istudenti huma mistiedna jilbsu ta’ Santa’s Helpers. Kull ritratt ta’ daqs 6”x8”se jkun għall-prezz ta’ €2 u l-flus ser jinġabru biss fil-15, 16 u 17 ta’ Diċembru. Filwaqt li napprezzaw ħafna l-kooperazzjoni tagħkom fl-attivitajiet li norganizzaw għall-ġid tal-istudenti tagħna, nieħdu l-okkażjoni sabiex nawgurawlkom l-isbaħ xewqat għall-Milied hieni u s-sena l-ġdida mimlija saħħa.

Grazzi bil-quddiem.
