On Thursday 10th, Monday 14th and Tuesday 15th of April, 2014, the Home Economics Seminar Centre [HESC] staff in liaison with the senior management team of St. Ignatius College, Siġġiewi Primary School organised a theoretical session and a hands-on practical session for Year 6 pupils and their parents / guardians. This intervention aimed to help pupils and their parents / guardians acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes which would enable them to make informed healthier food choices.
Prior to the facilitation of the sessions the pupils’ parents / guardians were informed through a circular which included all details about this activitiy. On the day, the participants were first grouped in the pupils’ respective classroom and a short presentation emphasising personal hygiene and safety features was facilitated by HESC staff. Following this, the participants were then divided into two groups not exceeding sixteen individuals in each session for safety reasons. The two groups alternated between a practical session and an interactive PowerPoint presentation. The PowerPoint presentation highlighted key aspects to a healthier lifestyle namely healthy eating and exercise. This was facilitated by HESC staff through an active learning pedagogy where participants were actively engaged through questioning techniques, interactive sketches and discussion. Prior to commencing the practical session, participants wore the adequate attire: head gear and apron. As the teacher explained to the participants how to proceed throughout the session, pupils and their parents / guardians shared roles. These roles included the practising of several skills such as weighing, chopping, peeling, boiling, baking, cleaning up, time management and table laying.
For this activity, a healthy pasta dish with fresh broad beans was prepared. Broad beans were used as these were in season thus highlighting sustainable issues. Following the practical session, all dishes and drinks were laid on the table and both a verbal self-evaluation and a peer to peer evaluation were carried out.
The second week of June 2014 is Comenius Week at Siġġiewi Primary. Thirty-five members of staff and students from five partner school coming from the UK (Manchester and Northumberland), Spain, Italy and Turkey meet at St Ignatius College Siġġiewi Primary for the second project meeting. The project entitled ‘The Changing World of Children’ compares and contrasts the various landscapes of the participating countries. This is being done through a multilanguage dictionary with terms related to nature, mascots to represent each school, postcard exchange, a Comenius project corner in each school, creative use of recycled material for crafts, nature walls, nature song book and a calendar. It also discusses ways and means how to make this world a better place through ecology education at school and types of renewable energy. The Project Ceremony took place at Ġuże’ Delia Hall at Siġġiewi Primary on Wednesday 11th June.
The ceremony included ‘Catch the Drop’ songs and videos, emphasising the need to reduce the use of water, amongst other commodities. The highlight was the participation of Kristina Casolani, courtesy of Green MT, with her song ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’, the official song chosen by the Maltese school for the project.
