At Gozo College Nadur Primary, both the School Development Plan as well the EcoSchool Action Plan 2011-12 are strongly supported and encourage an active, healthier lifestyle for all of the children and the community as a whole.
This year, as part and parcel of the EcoSchools HSBC Climate Change – School-Community Link Project, the Eco School Committee embarked upon a wider number of initiatives targeting the local community at large. In fact last night over 100 children, together with their family members and other Nadur residents, participated in the second Night Hike of this scholastic year.
At 6.00pm, the whole group of children, teachers and parents walked from Ghasri Parish Square to the Marsalforn bay through Gozitan valleys and Qbajjar promenade. the children were very excited, all pointing their torches and looking up the different flora and fauna of the Gozitan landscape. In fact, everyone cherished the stunning views of rural Gozo with its tiny villages and hamlets nestling around its flat-topped hills. On arrival at Marsalforn, the group had a well-deserved dinner together at a local waterfront restauraunt.
The whole activity was successfully coordinated by the Activity Teachers within the Gozo College and the School Management. Parents and Nadur residents also actively participated in the educational event and expressed their full support and satisfaction that their children and themselves were provided with such opportunities to sustain a better and healthier lifestyle as part and parcel of the regional focus of Gozo as an ecoisland.
Appreciation was also shown to the school’s EcoSchool Committee who really worked hard to encourage everyone to participate actively, as well as to the EcoGozo initiative within the Ministry for Gozo which strongly supports such educational and family-linked initiatives.
