The activity was organised for Kinder Garden children from the Gozo College Xaghra, Gozo College Xewkija and St. Francis School (Primary) at the Villa Rundle gardens. 

Butterflies was the theme chosen for this year’s event. Apart from the story telling and singing, the children who attended had an illustrated talk about the life cycle of the butterfly. Various pirctures of local butterflies were exhibited as well. At the end of the session, the butterflies were released to the clapping and amusement of the children present. The children later participated in a themed crafts activity.

The event was attended by the Minister for Gozo, Dr Anton Refalo.

 

 

*World environment day is celebrated on the 5th of June. We held this activity a week before the actual day because this year's 5th June falls on a Sunday.
