It is my pleasure to welcome you to what I hope will be an interesting website full of activities which challenge, nurture, engage and educate all our students. Birkirkara Primary forms part of St Theresa College and the school population is close to 800 pupils – Kindergarten to Year 6. Our school also provides education for learners from a migrant background. This is a valuable potential asset for the Maltese society as diversity is celebrated.
As declared in the school mission statement, the motivated and dedicated staff aims to ‘develop the children to their full potential in the moral, spiritual, emotional, social and cultural aspects in order to help them develop into harmonious individuals’. Our teachers are encouraged not only to teach curricula and skills but to prioritize values and qualities which we believe our students will need later on in life.
Our ultimate aim is to enable each and every individual move forward in life, thus enhancing the school vision – ‘Little steps lead to great strides’. The school fosters respect for diversity in order to ensure that our students integrate in a complex changing world.
By means of this website, communication with the community is enriched. I sincerely hope you will find it interesting!
Our school organised Parents’ Day on Friday 17th March. On this day we always have our annual Book Fair which was also a great success. Parents are invited to participate in ‘Donate a Book Scheme’ whereas they can buy a book and donate it to the school library. The school attaches a label to the book to indicate the name of the pupil donating the book.
We are pleased to present to you a selection of the books acquired by the school library through this scheme.
