Educators are encouraged to use a set of teaching strategies that guide students through in-depth studies of real-world topics. Despite not being implicitly taught, literacy, numeracy and science form the basis of the learning and teaching process. Schools are heavily investing in resources that will help in delivering such a rich curriculum to help students grow.
About 755 students between the age of 3 and 7 attending the schools that form part of St Margaret College will benefit from this project. The schools include: Cospicua, Kalkara, Senglea, Vittoriosa, Xghajra and Zabbar A.
Teaching and learning is an interactive process so when teachers implement the project approach successfully, students feel highly motivated and actively involved in their own learning, leading them to produce high-quality work and to grow as individuals. Through these projects, students will develop 21st century skills including communication, creativity, critical thinking and collaboration amongst others. The funds from Melita Foundation will be divided between schools according to their different needs giving a healthy boost to the resources already available to strengthen the skills mentioned above.
