BirdLife Malta launches outdoor activities for Gozo primary schools

BirdLife Malta has said that thousands of children visit its nature reserves every year, however very few of them come from Gozo.
It said that it is understandable as travelling time between the two islands makes these types of field trips unpractical.
BirdLife Malta’s education team, in order to remedy this problem, has just launched two new outdoor activities specifically for Gozo’s primary schools
These are aimed at encouraging the schools to participate more in the Dinja Wahda educational programme.
BirdLife Malta is inviting Year 2 classes for sessions at Ta’ Kenuna Garden in Nadur, where children will be engaged in hands-on activities and learning opportunities through exploration and play.
Year 4 classes, will have the opportunity to participate in beach activities at Hondoq ir-Rummien or Ix-Xatt l-Ahmar, which BLM said, will be based on investigations of the litter problem and beach ecology and on the exploration of the seashore biodiversity.
A Year 4 class from Qala Primary inaugurated these special educational activities during a session held at Hondoq.
BirdLife Malta said that other schools wishing to avail themselves of these opportunities, which are offered free of charge, are kindly asked to contact BirdLife Malta’s education team on 21 347 645/6 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
