On Thursday 10th November 2011, all students and staff at San Anton School celebrated the traditional feast of San Martin by organising a sponsored walk to the San Martin Caves and the surrounding areas of Bidnija and Ghajn Tuffieha.
The weather was favourable and many parents joined in the walk whilst the younger Kindergarten students were taken on a picnic to Ta Qali.
SCOOPS Student Co-operative prepared “Hobz biz-Zejt” which were then sold to the Senior Sector students during refreshment stops.
At the end of the day, all students were given the traditional San Martin bags which contained fruit and the San Martin bun, which had been prepared by parent helpers.
“The San Martin Walk is a much anticipated annual event on the school calendar, and a fine example of the whole school community coming together as one.” commented Dr. Joe Gauci, Head of School.
