STEM Debate on Climate Change

Hailey Schembri, our EkoSkola Committee President, participated in an online STEM debate on climate change which included top Maltese politicians. Her opening sentence must make us all reflect:

Climate change is becoming a crisis and we’re the ones who can slow it down.

Xrobb l-Għaġin Boundary Wall Project

As part of the LEAF programme, our school is participating in the Xrobb l-Għaġin boundary wall project. The aim of the project is to embellish the perimeter wall of the park with indigenous plant and shrub species.

The project consists of upgrading of the boundary wall at Xrobb l-Għaġin Nature Park by demolishing the present eye-sore and constructing an environmentally sensitive wall. The new wall shall include a 1km long stretch circa of low level 5 course wall using weathered recycled limestone. The new wall will consist of 2 m long planters where indigenous coastal shrubs from the Xrobb l-Għaġin peninsula shall be planted. Eco-Schools, LEAF and YRE students are adopting these cuttings for propagation and once they grow they will be planting them into the large planters making up the boundary wall. Our school is one of them.
