During last Wednesday’s special assembly we focused on the topic of peace and non-violence. As most of you may know, the 30th of January is the anniversary of Ghandi’s death. Mahatma Ghandi was a peace activist who was well known for his non-violence beliefs. Ghandi was the person who led an Indian Independence movement against the British. This was done through peace and non-violence. Ghandi led non-violent protests against the British and even when he was locked up in prison he used to pass on his message by fasting for several days.

During this assembly the children had the chance to spread a message of love and peace. It is essential to not just learn about who Ghandi was and what he did, it is important to put into practice what he used to preach:

Be the change you wish to see in the world!

Let’s start from home, in our classrooms and communities. Let’s spread the word of love and goodness.

Imagine waking up to find that the neighbours you have known all your life, now walk past you without stopping, now forbid their children from playing with you. Imagine that you have done nothing wrong, yet you are to be punished nonetheless and no one will stand by you.

This Sunday, the 27th of January is Holocaust Memorial Day. The Holocaust was a terrible time in human history. It happened leading up to and during World War II, when Germany was trying to conquer the rest of Europe. Germany was led by a man named Adolf Hitler. Hitler did not like Jewish people and blamed them for Germany losing the First World War in 1918.  He decided that in order to make the world better, he needed to get rid of the Jewish people and many other races of people that he didn’t think were worthy.

 

6 million Jews, including children, were persecuted by the Nazis because of who they were and what they believed in.  They were stripped off their right to speak, to have their own home, to work, to attend school and instead of their name they were given a number. What should be learned from this experience? It is the duty of our generation to have solidarity with the weak, the persecuted, the poor, the lonely and the sick. In our cities, towns and villages wherever we live, there are other people around us.  These people have different backgrounds, occupations and lives.  We need to respect these different communities so that we all live a better life.

 

The children of our class Year 5.1 tried to pass this message  to the whole school during a special assembly. In class we had a very mature discussion on this sensitive topic where the children asked a lot of questions and empathised with the people who were forced to live through these cruel experiences of the Holocaust.

 

The question that still remains … How did Hitler manage to convince millions of people to follow along blindly and not fight back? Let us stop history from repeating itself.

On Tuesday 11th December the EkoSkola committee were invited to join a turtle release at Għadira bay. The moment we arrived we started off with a number of workshops that tackled different issues related to sustainability and sea life. Some of the themes discussed were the different types of jelly fish we find in Malta, saving small sharks caught in fishing nets, caring for our beaches and of course injured turtles. The highlight of the event was then meeting Doris, a turtle which had been in the care of Nature Trust for over two years after it had been caught in plastic. Unfortunately, one of its back flippers had to be cut off but the team at Nature Trust made sure it could still swim and catch fish before releasing it back to the open sea. What a joy it was to see so many children cheering on Doris as she made her way to the sea! Anyone wanting to know what Doris is up to can follow her journey on the Nature Trust Facebook page because thanks to a trekker that she has on her shell we can all follow where she is going. We hope that you will enjoy following Doris as much as us.
