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!

On Wednesday 26th November all the Year 1 classes organised and participated in this term’s Maths Club. Each teacher prepared a different activity and the children moved from class to class and were engaged in all four activities. The areas covered were number value, shapes, patterns and more/less than. The theme for this Maths Club was Christmas and thus all material created by the children was based on this theme. This material was then stuck on the windows of the school corridor to celebrate the children’s work and also doubled as Christmas decorations. The children actively participated in all of the activities and they were challenged to engage in challenging tasks. This Maths Club was a success as all the children enjoyed themselves while using their Mathematical skills to complete the four tasks.

Wednesday 26th November was a memorable day for our Year 2 children as, in line with our schools’s Development Plan, we organised a Literacy Club. The teachers prepared a lot of fun games covering different aspects of the English Language, namely colours, compound words, punctuation and the indefinite articles. The children moved from one classroom to another, where they found different stations to engage in. All children benefitted greatly from this Literacy Club as it was an innovative way to learn.
