On Monday 29th September, at our school, we celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Malta’s Independence. Students assembled in the school yard and after a brief introduction by the Head of School, Ms Pauline Grech, the English flag was lowered down at the sound of the English national anthem. The Maltese national anthem followed and the Maltese flag was raised. As a sign of independence, fifty homing pigeons were liberated at the cheers of all the students. This event is the first one of many to mark patriotic dates in our Maltese history.
