GOZO LIVE GOZO COLLEGE CREATIVE WRITING COMPETITION

This competition ended on 31st March.  We received over 85 entries so the judges have a huge task to decide on winners.  All entrants will be contacted either directly, through their schools, on the Gozo Live facebook page or on Gozo News as soon as final results are available.

The theme this year was travel/transport and we have had many really interesting and creative approaches to this subject.  Sponsorship has been obtained for prizes.  Students are commended for their imagination and creativity.

It is hoped to hold the award ceremony in June.  Look out for further information.

Gharb Primary School students on top of Gozo!

Students of Years 1 and 2 from Gharb Primary School, had the opportunity to get out of the classroom for a while and experience some different activities. Their first stop was a visit to Ta’ Dbiegi Crafts Village.

Gharb Primary School students find themselves on top of Gozo!

There the students were able to enjoy hands-on activities at both the pottery workshop and Gozo Glass. They were also able to view the making of pottery objects.

Later, with the help of the Activity Teachers, they ascended Ta’ Dbiegi Hill, which is the highest point in Gozo, at a height of about 931m above sea level.

The students said that they enjoyed the feeling of being “on top of Gozo,” and in perfect weather, the wonderful panoramic view of Gozo’s countryside and the northern part of Malta.
