A walk in the Countryside
A group of Ghajnsielem Primary School students were recently taken on a walk in the countryside. This walk forms part of an initiative taken by the Gozo College which plans to involve all primary students on the island in similar activities by the end of the present scholastic year.
The group of Teachers who are coordinating this initiative acoompanied the Ghajnsielem Primary children on a walk along possibly one of the most beautiful coastal areas of Gozo, extending from Xatt l-Ahmar, towards Mgarr ix-Xini.
Along the walk, the students also took part in physical exercise sessions, and towards the end of the walk, visited the Gozo Sewage Treatment Plant which stands in the vicinity.
By means of this initiative, which is a very important element of the Eco-Gozo school programme, students were exposed to the benefits of walking and exercising, while in this particular case, they also benefitted from the attraction and learning experience of visiting the sewage treatment infrastructure on the island. More walks for students are planned for the future.
