Grade 11 Live-In Experience

April 14, 2024

Our Grade 11 Live-in has come to an end, marking the end of an enriching experience for all involved.

The event commenced with an inspiring talk in the library by Ms. Ramona Vassallo, who shared her personal journey of overcoming homelessness. Her narrative served to sensitise students to the pressing issue within our society. Engaged and curious, the students posed thought-provoking questions, undoubtedly reshaping their perspectives on this prevalent problem.

Following the enlightening discussion, the group ventured to the cinema for a screening of "Ghost Busters: The Frozen Empire." The film seamlessly melded the nostalgia of the original 1980s story with cutting-edge special effects, delighting the students.

Continuing the tradition, the cohort then enjoyed a visit to a local Mgarr restaurant. Here, amidst delicious food, they fostered friendships and culminated the evening with an impromptu music and dance session.

The night took an adventurous turn with a moonlit night hike through the valley. Split into groups, the students infused the journey with music, transforming it into a lively and memorable outing.

As the evening progressed, the atmosphere mellowed with a game of night football, accompanied by a crackling campfire, marshmallows, hot chocolate, and soulful guitar melodies. Group discussions added depth to the camaraderie.

The morning brought a hearty English breakfast prepared by the educators, followed by spirited volleyball matches. The day's highlight awaited at the Obstacle Course Academy in Mrieħel, where a number of challenges and activities awaited. From teamwork exercises to personal triumphs, the day was filled with both skill-building and laughter.

A heartfelt thank you extends to Mr. Eman Elllul, our  Youth Worker, for organising  the event, and to all the educators for their support and supervision throughout.

These activities have become a cherished tradition on our school calendar, fostering lasting friendships, personal development, and a sense of community among our grades.
